As I understand it, the rule change has been drafted by the Islamic 
Consultative Assembly but has not been approved by the Guardian Council, 
which may amend or veto it before it becomes law. It's possible, for 
example, that the Guardian Council will delay implementation until next 
year, which would be a good idea from the point of view of updating cell 
phones and computers in an orderly way.

Please let us know when the rule change becomes official, so we can 
prepare a new tzdb release.

Please also see 
<https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/tz/2022-March/031269.html> for a 
possible workaround on systems that need to use the proposed new rule 
before it's official.
