Hi, i am waiting for the law publication to check details, I will send
copy if you like. At this time i am not sure about the line:
> + Rule Arg 2008 max - Oct Sun>=1 0:00 1:00 S
The only advertised dates of implementations are for 2007/2008 ending at
03-16. I don`t see any news related to 2008 Oct. Could you share the
this info ?
Ezequiel, from Arg :(
