Thanks; that URL will do nicely.  Perhaps the responsibility for
decrees has shifted from the president's office to that ministry.

That decree says that daylight-saving time will end on midnight,
February 14, 2004.  I understand this to mean 24:00 on February 14,
which is 00:00 on February 15.  If this understanding is incorrect
please let me know.  I'd like to propose tz patches very soon,
since it takes time for this stuff to propagate.
