No apologies, I sent the email before my membership to the mailing list was
confirmed, that's why.

I noticed this somewhat vague phrasing as well and tried to dig into this.
The now superseded law
simlarly vague in this area, but the related act
clearly specifies the rules about UTC offsets and DST (or lack hereof) for
all four Greenlandic time zones.

I agree that the combination of the two installed patches is the best guess
we can make.
I've sent an email to Sermitsiaq.AG, the Greenlandic newspaper who wrote
the articles, and asked if they can help clearing up what this means
for Ittoqqortoormiit, e.g. if Ittoqqortoormiit will continue using DST
despite Nuuk abolishing it.
