Hi Paul,
Happy New Year !

Have you got an date in mind for the next update (assume tzdata2007a) 
which will include the Bahamas?

Many thanks, Dave.

Thanks for the heads-up; I'll include this in my next proposed patch.

This leaves Cuba, Haiti, Mexico, and Turks and Caicos as obvious
candidates of countries to watch, to see whether they change their DST
rules to match those of the US.
