why UCLA's mail server thinks it's still standard time

Re the UCLA mail server problem I mentioned today: the UCLA Network
Operations Center replied "The DST patch was not applied intentionally
because it will have to be done during a maintenance window."  So it
could be a long time before that server knows about the 2007 DST rule

I expect a lot of servers are in similar boats.  Administrators are so
worried about introducing problems with a DST patch that they simply
live with the clocks being wrong.
