Description Petr Machata 2007-08-30 12:27:05 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #266861 +++

Description of problem:

* Egypt switches the September 7, not September 28.  Thanks to Dirk
  Losch for this.

* Daviess, Dubous, Knox, Martin, and Pike Counties, Indiana, switch
  from central to eastern time in November.  This results in a zone
  split, and a new entry America/Tell_City is created for Perry County,
  which does not switch zones in November.

* South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria, and New South Wales are changing
  their DST rules effective next year.  DST will end the first Sunday in
  April at 03:00 and start the first Sunday in October at 03:00.  Lord Howe
  Island has a similar change.

* Several Antarctic station's rules weren't properly updated to account
  for this year's change to the New Zealand daylight saving rules.

Additional info:

We need to push 2007g to get these updates.
