  I really appreciate the patch.

  I'm just not sure if the end date was kept on 3rd Sunday of February, 2019. How is it now?

"At the request of the MEC, the government postpones daylight saving time for November 18"

"The hammer was struck yesterday by President Michel Temer in a meeting with the Minister of Mines and Energy, Moreira Franco. The presidential decree with daylight saving time will be published in the Official Gazette of the Union in the coming days."

  The brazilian president just announced a new change on this year DST. It was scheduled to start on November 4th and it was changed to November 18th.

  How long does it takes to update tzdata with this new information?

  We, IT professionals, are very upset with this change since most of us had already updated our files. And now we have a very shourt window to apply this new update.

Thank you
