Which is the object of the tzdist working group, but I'd like to see a
little more consideration given to how a short notice change is flagged.
That a meeting was scheduled perhaps 12 months before for next week and
it may now happen an hour adrift is easy to miss if one has the original
time in your head? ;) Not a problem for tz or tzdist but since we have
the information that a change is required ...
