I'm forwarding this message from Mike Castleman, who is not on the time
zone mailing list. Those of you who are on the list: please direct
replies to this message appropriately. Thanks!

MC: others have also reported this information, and Paul Eggert has
circulated proposed changes to the time zone database to reflect it;
those changes should appear in the ftpable version of the database this
coming Monday.

Subject: Cuba back on standard time

According to _Granma_, the official newspaper:

AT 1:00 a.m. on Sunday, October 29, the clocks in Cuba were put back one
hour, thus standard time - also known as winter time - in Cuba has once
more come into effect.


full article (english):

The Spanish article is clearer than the English that the change took
place at 1am summer time; i.e., midnight standard time.
