	I can't quite discern from  the "diff" information provided what's
	to have happened in Jordan. Is the country now "permanently" (i.e.
	year-round) on UT+03? What is being proposed for the time-zone "suffix"?
	Surely not "EEST", meaning, I presume, Eastern European Summer Time?
	Shouldn't it rather be the same as other countries in the region (if
	that are on UT+03 year round?

The change is based on correspondence that read (in part):
	In April I reported that Jordan had stopped using DST. Now the
	will use DST all year long
Given the "DST all year long" language, using a DST-designating abbreviation
seemed like the right thing to do.
