+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #167741 +++

USA as well as a few other countries changed their DST rules (US starting with
2007, Australia in 2006, etc.) and new upstream tzdata has been released.
The fewer we get this to customers, especially as we have many in the US, the
The changes in 2005m since 2005k are:
  - changes for USA (extending DST by 4 weeks since 2007), Tunisia,
    Australia, Kazakhstan
  - historical timezone data changes for Japan, Poland, Northern Ireland and
  - timezone name change for East Timor

jkt approved this for U2/U6 yesterday from QA POV.

Comment 4 Robert Reynolds 2006-02-07 15:40:29 EST
Indiana will begin recognizing DST on 4/2/2006.  The zoneinfo for
America/Indianapolis and other related Indiana zones needs to be updated in
tzdata.  I am told that tzdata-2006a contains these updates.

What is RedHat's projected date to make these changes?

Fedora Legacy is working with these issues for RHL 7.3, RHL 9.0, FC1, FC2,
and probably FC3 as well.  See Bug #173091.  Jakub, Petr, do we wish to
collaborate on this?
Comment 6 Petr Machata 2006-04-06 10:41:20 EDT
Hm, this looks like leftover, we have 2006b in processing for RHELs and 2006c
for fedoras. Closing.
