Pakistan introducing DST
Last modified: 2015-05-04 21:33:52 EDT
Description of problem:
As on June 1 2008 Pakistan will be introducing DST moving clocks ahead one hour.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. zdump -v /usr/share/zoneinfo/Asia/Karachi | grep 2008
2. No DST definitions
3. Sigh at Yet Another Country Changing DST With Short Notice (YACCDSTWSN)
Lack of DST for Pakistan in 2008
DST for Pakistan 2008
This does of course apply to all versions of RHEL. New DST does not even appear
to be in upstream tzdata set yet. I expect this will be fixed very shortly.

A fix... I guess
The closest thing to official announcement that I found just mentions that the
change will be introduced on Jun/1, and will last three months, which is not
very exact. timeanddate.com think that DST will start 0:01 (local time) and
end Aug/31 0:01. This is reasonable, because that matches transition points
from previous DST period (both Sundays, 0:01).
