"minnie"?  I see that the tz mailing list gremlins are still hard at work.
As far as I know, only tz at elsie.nci.nih.gov is supposed to work these days.

Thanks for the legal references.  I looked for something a bit less
forbidding, and it appears to me that the short summary is as follows.
So I'll propose a patch along those lines.

# From Paul Eggert (2005-08-16):
# http://www.mccsc.edu/time.html says that Indiana will use DST starting 2006,
# and that many counties may switch either to Central or to Eastern time.
# The county-by-county decisions have not been made yet, so for now assume
# that no counties will switch: this assumption is most likely wrong,
# but it's the best we can do for now.
