Yes, this sounds like the earlier story that I mentioned
except there it sounded like it wasn't true DST, but was simply the
government urging businesses to start their workday earlier.
Without further details I guess we'll have to leave the data as it is.

Thanks for the heads up.  I don't know where that article got the
"August" from, since the actual announcement from the president's
office doesn't say "August".


Still, any guess is better than no guess, and I suppose we can guess
the first Sunday in September at 02:00.
