1) It seems you forget to reflect recent official Moscow timezone rule
change (Sep->Oct), I already send you update long time ago and you tell me
that it is commited.

2) I still see MOST cruft, instead of commonly used MSK/MSD...
I remember you agree to change those names back to MSK/MSD,
but nothing happens too.

Please fix this two problems and upload new tzdata1996m
as soon as possible stop incoming chaos with Russian zone.
It already hits: as first example wrong europe file was just commited
to FreeBSD distribution.
