New DST dates for Mauritius - moved to October

According to (in French),
Mauritius will start and end their DST a few days earlier than 
previously announced (2008-11-01 to 2009-03-31).
The new start date is 2008-10-26 at 02:00 and the new end date is 
2009-03-27 (no time given, but it is probably at either 2 or 3 wall 
clock time).

A little strange though, since the article says that they moved the date 
to align itself with Europe and USA which also change time on that date, 
but that means they have not paid attention to what happened in 
USA/Canada last year (DST ends first Sunday in November). I also wonder 
why that they end on a Friday, instead of aligning with Europe which 
changes two days later.

Best regards,
