Hi, i am waiting for the law publication to check details, I will send you a 
copy if you like. At this time i am not sure about the line:

> + Rule  Arg  2008  max  -  Oct  Sun>=1  0:00  1:00 S

The only advertised dates of implementations are for 2007/2008 ending at 2008-
03-16. I don`t see any news related to 2008 Oct. Could you share the source of 
this info ?
