Noon standard time, or noon daylight saving time? :-)

Anyway, thank you for the heads-up. In the light of today's and (likely) 
tomorrow's developments I suggest that downstream distributors stick 
with tzdb 2023a for now. The only change in 2023b is this recent 
controversial Lebanon adjustment, and if (as seems quite possible) the 
Lebanese government changes its rules again, we'll need a tzdb 2023c 
shortly, which will quite possibly be identical to 2023a except for 

In short: stick with 2023a for now, and tomorrow let's see.

What a mess, huh?
