I would like confirmation from a reliable source about when Egypt will 
change its clocks on May 15.  So far, we have found no news article that 
has specified the time of day; the latest git commit guessed 00:00 but 
in <http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/tz/2014-May/020874.html> Mohamed 
Shageaasaid it should be 24:00, without giving a source.

If we can't get any reliable source I suppose I'll change the guess from 
00:00 to 24:00 and distribute a new release that way, but I'd rather 
avoid this kind of guesswork.  If anyone has a better source, please 
send it to <tz at iana.org> as soon as possible.  Thanks.
