> Good point, and thanks for looking into this and forwarding that info. This combines with the problems that Alois Treindl has been reporting for other Chinese time zones.  I did a bit more research on my own into timekeeping practice in Shanghai and came up with the attached proposed patch, which I hope addresses the issues that you and Alois raised. I've installed this into the experimental tz repository on github.

Isn't this in conflict with what was decided last cycle re: pre-1970 differences (e. g. the Toronto/Montreal mess)?
