Yes, the 48h window was officially decided by the cabinet and should
probably be adopted for historical purposes
Middle East airlines already changed local times back to Winter time so I
don't expect that they would change them again for Monday->Wednesday
flights only
Unless they do, this is another reason why historical time should be Winter
time for midnight Sunday -> midnight Thursday

That being said, while 2023c should be released as soon as possible to stop
the bleeding from 2023b and future scheduling conundrums, perhaps it's best
to advise vendors to stay on 2023a until at least Thursday morning and then
jump to 2023c to avoid further confusion in the interrim period
This is especially true as people in Lebanon are still calling DST
"International Time" vs Winter "Local Time". I think very few people are
aware of the IANA db and that a change was already committed and released
In other words, any sudden updates to their device times will completely
throw them off
