[tz] Jordan thinking of following Turkey's lead

Jordan is considering following Turkey's lead and switching to permanent +03, 
which would mean Asia/Amman's clocks would not be changed from 01:00 to 00:00 on 
October 28. Instead of switching back to +02 as currently planned, the 
government may delay working and school hours to better match year-round +03. 
(Amman's local mean time is roughly +0224.)

There is no word on when the decision will be made. If they do decide to change 
the rules on such short notice, we'd need to generate a new tz version soon 
after. Given the usual delays in propagating such a change, there's a good 
chance Jordan's cell phones and computers won't be updated in time.
