Yes, I am fine with anyone translating and republishing as long as appropriate credit and linkback are provided.  Thanks.

Hi Matt:

Excelent post, thank you for writing (and publishing it). I've been on this list for quite some time but I usually read it only now and then or when Argentina's government dedides to do "the stupid thing". Since we've been stuck on the same TZ for quite a few years now, I seldom come here.

In October 2008 (after a tzdata update was missed by several sources) I wrote a post mostly to explain to my connationals WTF had happened that weekend (https://clueless.com.ar/que-hora-es). A few days later I published a plead to sysadmins from different provinces asking for information (with sources) about wheather TZ change would go on as planned or (most likely) be suspended as in most of the country.

I am quite busy at the moment but, nonetheless, I'd very much like to translate your post into Spanish (obviously giving you credit and linking to the original post). Would you mind me translating it and publishing it? (or I could send you the translation and you can publish it if you prefer).
