Subject: Information about Brazilian DZT schedule for 2007-2008

  We are facing some problems regarding date/time issues in Java Applications.

  We found out Time zone info data for JRE is not up to date regarding 2007 brazilian DST schedule.
  As of 2007 brazilian DST schedule goes from 2007-10-14 to 2008-02-17.
  We had to update our file using the following rules:
Rule  Brazil  2007 only - Oct 14 0:00 1:00  D
Rule  Brazil  2008 only - Feb 17 0:00 0 - 
  Official government information can be found at: http://pcdsh01.on.br/DecHV6212.gif
  Is it possible to update Time zone info source files?
