We have been able to confirm the August change with the Egyptian Cabinet 
Information and Decision Support Center:

The Middle East News Agency http://www.mena.org.eg/index.aspx also 
reports "Egypt starts winter time on August 21 
today in article numbered "71, 11/08/2009 12:25 GMT". 
Only the title above is available without a subscription to their 
service, and can be found by searching for "winter" in their search 
engine (at least today).

Best regards,
