Thanks for the heads-up. Somehow I missed your email at first, and in
response to Jürgen Appel's later email
days ago I installed a patch
that the Nuuk and Ittoqqortoormiit areas will both switch to "permanent
DST" (i.e., change of standard time, and no DST) in March. However, my
guess about Ittoqqortoormiit seems to have jumped the gun, as the last
two paragraphs of the URL that you gave:
says that the intent is that Nuuk will not to back to winter time in
fall 2023, and that other Greenland regions are unaffected (though this

I found a copy of that document here:
It says that standard time becomes -02 on March 25 (when DST would have
otherwise switched clocks to -02 anyway), and that Naalakkersuisut can
decide DST rules as well as time zone rules for some areas.
It sounds like they're still thinking about exactly what this all means,
that they don't like Nuuk's switching back and forth but haven't
codified this yet, and that they don't yet know what Ittoqqortoormiit
will prefer. So for now I think it's better to back out the change to
Ittoqqortoormiit that I guessed three days ago.
Proposed patch attached and installed into the development database.
