Subject: Finnish summer time (DST) rule

	Greetings from Kirkkonummi (32km from Helsinki),

	The correct DST rule (in POSIX TZ syntax) for Finland has
	been at least since 2002


	Notice that in there the zone change times are represented
	in the local time of the zone which is current at the moment
	when the change shall take place - i.e. both local times
	actually refer to 01:00 GMT.

	I guess Finland used this rule already several years before
	the common EU directive officially harmonized the DST rules
	all around EU from 2002 onwards.

	The EU directive can be found here...


	I will let you know, if I find more precise info about when
	Finland actually adopted the current DST rule.
