Could these go up on Friday the 1st rather than on Monday, as the changes to the Chile time zone take effect this weekend?
Also, while the Chile time zone updates seem to be correct based on my tests on my machines, one small comment change:

In my haste, I mistranslated this (I skipped some text and screwed up "desde/hasta" just like I always do). It should read:
# Chile's clocks will go back an hour this year on the 7th of May instead
