Thank you Eric. 

How does one keep informed about upcoming time zone and DST/STD rule changes for various countries ?  We have a in-house application that needs to convert local time to/from UTC for users around the globe and thus need to keep track of when DST begins/ends for each time zone.  We use ISO std. time zone conventions (ex. America/Los_Angeles, Australia/Melbourne etc).

There isn't a single official site. Each state legislates time separately.

I sent links with the legislation covering the recent change to this mailing list:
