If no one has yet reported this ... (did not see it in the latest time zone
The uruguayan government has decreed a change in the local time. The decree
in the government's web site (in Spanish):
This means that from 9 October 2005 at 2:00 local time, until 12 March 2006
at 2:00 local time, official time in Uruguay will be at GMT -2
This means that the file "zoneinfo/southamerica" should be changed.
I assume the change must be to add the following 2 lines
Rule Uruguay 2005 only - Oct 9 2:00 1:00 S
Rule Uruguay 2006 only - Mar 12 2:00 0 -
I am no authority in Uruguay, just a timezone user.
