Dear Paul,

Can you just release 2023-c based on the government decision yesterday which is the official and align with the government statement yesterday and comment its description for history records?

Its chaos all over as Red Hat released 2023-b and apple and other vendors follows…

Thanks you

However, if you're currently using 2023b you will need to update to 2023c (or downgrade to 2023a) as soon as possible, as 2023b says that Lebanon observes standard time until April 20/21. If you use 2023b, both sides of the Lebanese dispute will disagree with you from March 30 through April 20.
