A quote from the 'asia' file:

# From Paul Eggert (2005-11-22):
# Starting 2004 transitions are from Steffen Thorsen's web site

# From Steffen Thorsen (2005-11-23):
# A user from Gaza reported that Gaza made the change early because of
# the Ramadan.  Next year Ramadan will be even earlier, so I think
# there is a good chance next year's end date will be around two weeks
# earlier--the same goes for Jordan.

Steffens web site now reports that Gaza started DST very early this year, of April at 0:00 hour local time:

The tz database would have this change as other years, at First Friday on or
after of April 0:00, like previous years back to 1999.

Now that we have a load of changes to publish, should we also include this
change? Perhaps Steffen can comment?
