[RHEL 5] Argentina: Five provinces not to introduce DST
Last modified: 2015-05-04 21:34:21 EDT
Description of problem:
Everything shows that starting this Sunday [...] at least five provinces
would not move forward the clocks. San Luis and Mendoza already confirmed
it and in La Rioja, San Juan and Catamarca they say there is no oficial
decision yet, but "very probably" they will not move the clock hands.
It seems to be official in Catamarca and San Juan as well now, according to
the press: [snip]
Current tzdata package is not ready for this. We will have to issue an update.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
$ TZ=America/Argentina/Mendoza date +%Z -d '2008-10-18 12:00'
$ TZ=America/Argentina/Mendoza date +%Z -d '2008-10-19 12:00'
ART and ARST (transition occurs in Mendoza)
ART and ART (transition doesn't occur in Mendoza)
Customers in Mendoza, San Juan, Catamarca and La Rioja could temporarily work around the problem by changing their zones to America/Argentina/San_Luis. Note that people from Chubut should keep their zone, America/Argentina/Catamarca.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
