Me neither, though I haven't looked that hard and I read Arabic only via 
automatic translators. Given your recent email and others, though, the 
likelihood of the change happening seemed high enough that a new tzdata 
release now seemed likely to cure more problems than it would cause.

The Egyptian government regularly changes daylight-saving rules with 
less than two weeks' notice, most recently in April of last year. Let's 
hope we guessed right this time. Either way, maybe you could add Egypt 
to the hall of fame in 
as Egypt's 2016 ranks right up there with 2015, 2011, 2010,....
