Thanks very much for the heads-up. I installed the attached proposed 
patch into tzdb's development version.

In September, RTTNews reported that Operador Nacional do Sistema 
Elétrico (ONS) had done a preliminary study saying that the effect of 
DST on Brazil's energy usage was trivial and decreasing; see 
Although I assume this was part of a push to cancel DST entirely in 
Brazil, it looks like the government decided to cancel just two or three 
weeks' worth.
