zic.8 in the development repository says, of the RULES field, "When an
amount of time is given, only the sum of standard time and this amount

So a STDOFF of 5:00 and RULES of 1:00 will sum to an offset of UT+06:00.
Since daylight saving is applied by the rule, the portion of FORMAT after
the slash (+06) is used.

I'm not sure where your "must contain a named rule" quote is coming from —
in this case the "rule" is not named, *per se*, but is rather a constant
1:00.  The relevant thing is that the RULES field is not "-".

If you are interested, I have found a few other bits and pieces where the

Certainly, if you find discrepancies in recent releases of our own
documentation that could be cleared up or clarified, please send those
