Venezuela to change time zone by 30 min in Sept
Last modified: 2015-05-04 21:33:23 EDT
Next month Venezuelan clocks will be set at Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
minus 4-1/2 hours, compared to the previous GMT minus four hours,
Science and Technology Minister Hector Navarro told reporters at a news
... No update has been made upstream at this point.
Pointer to article on web... change apparently will happen 9/24/07

Fix for this problem.
Proposed patch. This reflects my understanding of current situation:
+ No DST is introduced
+ The timezone will change from -4:00 to -4:30. At 24:00 of 23 Sep, the
clocks will move back to 23:30 of 23 Sep
+ New timezone should be called Hora Legal de Venezuela, and the time zone
abbreviation is accordingly HLV. This is best effort guess, not an official
resolution (as of yet).
I think this can be closed right?
