Thank you for the information about Chile!
Do you know if anyone has been in touch with Paul Eggert who might be able
to change the outdated information on http://www.twinsun.com/tz/tz-link.htm?
It seems a number of pages around the web still link to that older page as
the authoritative source about the tz database (instead of
http://www.iana.org/time-zones ) and it will likely confuse future web
searchers like me.
