Well... as usual, it is already  *that week* and I don't have any
reliable sources... my appeal for help
( didn't get
one response...

For what I see in the provincial press, the following provinces will
*not* apply DST this year:

* Mendoza
* San Juan
* San Luis
* Catamarca
* La Rioja

Only sources are provincial media:

At least they don't contradict each other...

countries are neutral.
