Thanks for the heads-up. We'll need a new TZDB release some time fairly 
soon, since our current prediction for Egypt will be wrong starting 
April 28.

Google Translate suggests that the announcement doesn't specify 
transition times. The attached proposed patch assumes the transition 
time is 00:00 in spring (i.e., the start of April's last Friday) and 
24:00 in fall (i.e., the end of October's last Thursday.) Does that 
sound right to you?
