Thanks, but I don't see anything in that article (which is currently 
inaccessible to me but is archived at 
saying that they'll change back on January 20. Instead, the article quotes the 
mayor as saying "I think what we’re going to do is we’re going to maintain our 
time until they ‘spring forward,’ and then we’ll align with the state at that 
time". That's what I installed into tzdb here:


and that's what been in tzdb since 2018h.

If the Metlakatla folks have changed their minds yet again, and are now planning 
for a transition on January 20, please let us know the time of the change, and 
we need to have a source for all this.
