there is one actual factual error in my note, "adopted a law abolishing
the transition *to* daylight saving time." should be "adopted a law
abolishing the transition *from* daylight saving time."
and "*The Russian timezones will stay on the "summertime". *might be
better worded as*"**The Russian timezones will stay on the same time as
in the summer".*
I'll update this on monday aldo it's rather old news these days and the
note is archived
