Mauritius will start and end their DST a few days earlier than
previously announced (2008-11-01 to 2009-03-31).
The new start date is 2008-10-26 at 02:00 and the new end date is
2009-03-27 (no time given, but it is probably at either 2 or 3 wall
A little strange though, since the article says that they moved the date
to align itself with Europe and USA which also change time on that date,
but that means they have not paid attention to what happened in
USA/Canada last year (DST ends first Sunday in November). I also wonder
why that they end on a Friday, instead of aligning with Europe which
changes two days later.
