I've found an updated document on which states:


    The summer time period which will be of one hour ahead of the
    standard time, will be aligned with that in Europe and the United
    States of America. It will start at two o'clock in the morning on
    the last Sunday of October and will end at two o'clock in the
    morning on the last Sunday of March the following year. The summer
    time for the year 2008 - 2009 will, therefore, be effective as from
    26 October 2008 and end on 29 March 2009.

So there's still confusion over the US DST dates, but it looks like
26 October 2008 is official.
