In today's Royal Gazette, Stuart Roberts reports that Bermuda will
fall into line with the US daylight-saving rules next year; see

Currently the tz tables take advantage of the fact that Bermuda and
the Bahamas use the same DST rules, and have done so since 1974.  My
guess is that the Bahamas will fall into line as well, but I have no
info about this, so perhaps it's better to play it safe for now and
split these rules.

There's no rush on this, since the new Bermuda rules don't affect
time stamps until March 2007.

Besides the Bahamas, other countries to watch on this front include
Cuba, Haiti, Mexico, and Turks and Caicos.
