Description Petr Machata 2008-05-19 07:37:10 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #447270 +++

Description of problem:

As on June 1 2008 Pakistan will be introducing DST moving clocks ahead one hour.

Ref http://www.worldtimezone.com/dst_news/dst_news_pakistan01.html

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:


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)
Actual results:

Lack of DST for Pakistan in 2008

Expected results:

DST for Pakistan 2008

Additional info:

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.
