Thank you for this information.  In particular, the extended table of dates
is incredibly helpful.

Our codebase requires us to make reasonable predictions of date patterns
into the indefinite future.  Since all of the dates provided here match a
similar pattern to the one used from 2016 to 2018 — that is, the Saturday
before the last Sunday in March and October (or "Sat>=24") — that seems
like a reasonable prediction for now, except these new clock changes will
be at 02:00 on those dates.  If the dates might leave this pattern at any
point, again, please aim to provide as much notice as possible.

While we write up this change… We do like to cite publicly-available
sources for the data we distribute so that users can confirm the data for
themselves.  I understand this was a recent decision, so it may not be
posted to your ministry's website yet.  Could you kindly send along a
public link to this decision or a similar announcement once it's posted?

Thanks again.
