More daylight savings in Australia

Do we have any official word on what will happen in Western/Southern Australia and when?

My Australian office tells me that it now looks like South Australia, NSW, ACT, Victoria, and Tasmania DST changes will occur the first Sunday in April 2008 - instead of the first Sunday in October 2007.  All changes are permanent except for South Australia, which will undergo a 'trial' change.

Thanks for the heads-up.  Today's Sydney Morning Herald reports
that South Australia and the Northern Territory (!) may sign
up later, but that Western Australia and Queensland will not
be involved.  Perhaps we should wait a bit to see who falls into
line.  Also, the SMH says only "it is believed" the dates are
as you mentioned.

This is currently listed as the #4 most-viewed article on the Sydney
Morning Herald web site.  A slow news day?
