I would like to thank Timothy for his work on this, and for creating the 
patchfile. We reviewed it offline, and had over 190 visits (so far) to 
the forum thread where it was discussed and prepared, and no negative 
comments at all where posted.

I also reviewed the patch and found it consistant with the intentions 

In general, the patch changes the tz files in order to now represent 
summer time in Australia and the Australian antarctic territories using 
'd' abbreviations for daylight saving time periods. No other 
abbreviations were not changed in this proposal. The patch will be 
loaded on our ftp server at ftp://ftp.relativedata.com/pub this evening 
for any that might want to download and test it.

We do hope that the patch is considered by the maintainers of tz, and 
applied to forthcoming tz releases.
