> According to Infomédiaire web site from Morocco (infomediaire.ma), on
March 9,
> 2012, (in French) Heure légale: Le Maroc adopte officiellement l'heure
> Governing Council adopted draft decree, that Morocco DST starts on
> the last Sunday of March (March 25, 2012) and ends on

Several things to check here:
1. The infomediarie.ma reference indicates that the change happens "chaque
   this means it is a matter of policy for every year going forward rather
than for just this year,
2. The infomediarie.ma reference specifies a "fall back" time of 03H00,
   but no time of day is specified for the spring forward--is that time of
   day expected to be 2:00 a.m.?
3. For the "no DST during the month of Ramadan" exception, is it known
   a. clocks will be adjusted on the first day of Ramadan, the day before
      first day, the Sunday before the first day of Ramadan, or the Sunday
      or before the first day of Ramadan?
   b. clocks will be adjusted on the day after Ramadan or the first Sunday
      after Ramadan?
   c. the time of day when the Ramadan adjustments are made?

Thanks for any light folks can shed.
