Thanks for the heads-up. This seems to be the first official fallout
from the European Commission proposal to abolish DST in Europe. It would
be odd to use the abbreviation "CET" for time in Morocco as Morocco is
neither central nor European (and the oddness will likely increase if
the EU abolishes DST), so the attached proposed patch changes time zone
abbreviations to be numeric in Morocco. As the change takes effect
tomorrow (with practical effect Sunday) we'll need a new tzdb release
This decision by Morocco may affect the near-future choice of time zone
in Spain, where there is a good deal of controversy and the possibility
that Spain may split into 3 timezones instead of the current 2, with the
Balearic Islands hiving off, resulting in a new tzdb Zone. See:
