Sigh.... I guess my blog post (https://codeofmatt.com/2016/04/23/on-the-timing-of-time-zone-changes/) wasn't fruitful in this regard.  Perhaps because there are fewer computer users in North Korea?

Thanks. In the absence of further info, let's assume the transition will be at
00:00 local time on May 5, and that the clocks will jump from 00:00 to 00:30.
Proposed patch attached. If we find out later that this assumption is wrong,
we'll need to update tzdb accordingly.

We'll need a new tzdb release shortly, of course.
