Subject: Brazil DST Rules for 2007
Importance: High

Hi Arthur, 

This is Amar Devegowda from IBM India Software Labs. 
It has been brought to our notice that the DST rules provided in Olsen
Time Zone Database and actual DST rules in Brazil for year 2007 and
beyond are different. 

In 2007, as per the Olsen the DST starts on the first Sunday that comes
on or after November 1st.   However, the actual DST rule states that the
DST starts on Oct 21st in 2007.   Here are a couple of web sites that
show these new DST rules upto 2009. 


Hence, could you please update the time zone database with the new rules
for Brazil in 2007 and beyond at the earliest ?
