As announced by the government and many newspapers in Brazil late 
yesterday, Brazil will start DST on 2008-10-19 (need to change rule) and 
it will end on 2009-02-15 (current rule for Brazil is fine). Based on 
past years experience with the elections, there was a good chance that 
the start was postponed to November, but it did not happen this year.
