can we assume that all European countries that are *not* in the EU
and those former republics of the ex-Soviet Union that observed DST
also delayed their ending date this year until the end of October?
As far as I know, the only exception is Kirgizstan, which (according
to the IATA) continued with its old rules and switched the last Sunday
in September. (I'm still preparing a zoneinfo patch using IATA data
that Gwillim Law kindly sent me a summary of.)
I believe that some sort of record was set today: more people
changed time today, 1996 October 27, than on any other date...
Could be. 1991-09-15 is another candidate; it's the last time that
China changed its clocks.
