I just subscribed to this list so please bear with me if this issue has been
discussed already or does not fit in here...
This week I was informed that the government of Kazakhstan has decided NOT to
perform the "time switch" from winter to summer time anymore (it was
mentioned in a local newspaper). Does anyone know if this is really the case
and if there is a timezone definition file for that already?
The current rule set for the Kazakh timezone Asia/Almaty says:
Rule RussiaAsia 1996 max - Oct lastSun 2:00s 0 -
Zone Asia/Almaty 5:07:48 - LMT 1924 May 2 # or Alma-Ata
5:00 - ALMT 1930 Jun 21 # Alma-Ata Time
6:00 RussiaAsia ALM%sT 1991
6:00 - ALMT 1992
6:00 RussiaAsia ALM%sT
So right now it's scheduled for March 27 (lastSun) at 2:00am. If they don't do
that switch anymore we'd have to change that timezone definition on our
servers there... Can anyone confirm this "rumor"?
Thanks & Regards, Stefan.
