Subject: DST changes in australasia due to 2000 Olympics
I am fixing a zoneinfo bug in Solaris. One of our customers has pointed out
that daylight saving should be fixed for NSW due to the Sydney Olympics.
The NSW government web site,
shows the following:
Daylight saving will commence on the last Sunday in October
at 2:00am EST and continue until the last Sunday in March
at 3:00am EDST.
1998 - 1999 Start: Sunday October 25, 1998
Finish: Sunday March 28, 1999
1999 - 2000 Start: Sunday October 31, 1999
Finish: Sunday March 26, 2000
2000 - 2001 Start: Sunday August 27, 2000
Finish: Sunday March 25, 2001
(Starting at 2.00am and Finishing at 2.00am)
In tzdata1999d (australasia 7.46), Rule AV and AN show the daylight saving
change on Aug 26 in 2000. Would the following fix the correct set of
timezones that are adopting this change?
