Thanks for mentioning this.  Paulo Alexandre Pinto Pires <p at>
also mentioned this, so I'll CC: this message to him as well.

Apparently the original announcement on October 1 did not mention that
Mato Grosso will observe DST, but this was corrected (or changed?)
today.  Do you happen to know why?  Do you think there will be further
corrections or changes?

<p at> suspects that people will object to changing the clocks
on Tuesday morning, November 2, and this leads me to worry that 2004
will resemble 2000.  2000 had a flurry of decrees in September and
October, each amending the previous one.
