While trying to understand why some of our machines did not switch to
DST, I noticed this part in the "europe" file ...
# Zone NAME GMTOFF RULES FORMAT [UNTIL]
Zone Europe/Bucharest 1:44:24 - LMT 1891 Oct
1:44 - BMT 1931 Jul 24 # Bucharest MT
2:00 Romania EET%s 1981 Mar 29 2:00s
2:00 M-Eur EET%s
# This may change to `E-Eur' soon, for EC compatibility.
And I can certify that M-Eur was indeed changed to E-Eur, I believe
since last october (not sure though).
Anyway, today (29 Mar -> lastSun), 3:00 local time turned into 4:00
local time. This looks like it's E-Eur, and not M-Eur:
Rule M-Eur 1981 max - Mar lastSun 2:00s 1:00 " DST"
Rule M-Eur 1996 max - Oct lastSun 2:00s 0 -
Rule E-Eur 1981 max - Mar lastSun 3:00s 1:00 " DST"
Rule E-Eur 1996 max - Oct lastSun 3:00s 0 -
I found the file on a solaris machine. Where can one find the most
recent timezone definitions ?
All the best,
