Aha! That contains a draft Directive which is clear.
* The present system applies to the 2018-10-28 transition to winter time
and the 2019-03-31 transition to summer time.
* The 2019-10-27 transition to winter time is optional; member states must
announce by 2019-03-31 whether or not they will make it.
* After that, no seasonal changes are permitted.
* Member states can make one-off changes to a different UTC offset but must
give at least 6 months notice and can't change their mind during the 6 month
window (but can before that).
(I suppose a state could give notice of one-off changes every 6 months, but
I think that would be seen as a violation of the "no seasonal changes"
rule, which takes precedence.)
