Description Alexandre Oliva 2006-10-09 19:31:50 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #210058 +++

Description of problem:
Because of the second round of Brazilian elections and the bad programming of
the voting machines, DST is being delayed again this year, to avoid the need for
reprogramming all of the machines before the second round.

Current tzdata thinks the change is on Oct 15, but it was delayed to Nov 5. 
Also, the end is scheduled by tzdata for Feb 18, but the official date is Feb 25.

It would be nice if this could be fixed in all maintained RHEL releases, and
there's only one week left :-(  Barely enough time to push the package out, get
the update installed and everything time-dependent (cron comes to mind)
restarted to pick up the changes :-(

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
tzdata-2006j-1.fc6

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.export TZ=America/Sao_Paulo; date -d 'Nov 4 23:59 2006'; date -d 'Nov 5 01:00
2006'; date -d 'Feb 24 23:59 2007'; date -d 'Feb 25 01:00 2007'
  
Actual results:
Sat Nov  4 23:59:00 BRST 2006
Sun Nov  5 01:00:00 BRST 2006
Sat Feb 24 23:59:00 BRT 2007
Sun Feb 25 01:00:00 BRT 2007

Expected results:
Sat Nov  4 23:59:00 BRT 2006
Sun Nov  5 01:00:00 BRST 2006
Sat Feb 24 23:59:00 BRST 2007
Sun Feb 25 01:00:00 BRT 2007
