I downloaded the latest version of timezone package and applied it on Linux machine. when I use "zdump -v" command to show Melbourne zoneinfo, I got first two lines shown as below:
Australia/Melbourne Sat Apr 5 15:59:59 2008 UTC = Sun Apr 6 02:59:59 2008 EST isdst=1  gmtoff=39600
Australia/Melbourne Sat Apr 5 16:00:00 2008 UTC = Sun Apr 6 02:00:00 2008 EST isdst=0  gmtoff=36000

In my opinion, in the first line, the word "EST" (which I marked with red colour)should be "'EDT". Is it a problem or actually what I am thinking is wrong?
