I must overlook something here -- but I do not see
why you use negative SAVE values before 2017-10-24.
From 1994-03 until 2017-10-24, the Namibian Time Act
1994 was in effect, which specifies:
" 1(1) The standard time of Namibia shall -
(a) during the summer period, be two hours
in advance of Greenwich mean time; and
(b) during the winter period, be one hour
in advance of Greenwich mean time. "
So both summer and winter time are called
"standard" (which differs from the use in Ireland),
and the proposed tzdb dst bit just indicates
the "winter period".
