+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #912521 +++
Chile's Government has announced they will extend their summertime again in 2013, much like 2012.
Winter time will come into force on April 27th, Saturday, at 24:00 hs (meaning the clock turns back 60 minuts into April 27th, Saturday, 23:00).
Summer time will come into force on September 7th, Saturday, at 24:00 (meaning the clock will jump 60 minuts forward, into September 8th, Sunday, at 01:00).
Please note that Chile has two timezones, one for continental and Antartica regions, and another one for Easter Islands region. Changes are the same, only that in the latter region, changes take place at 22:00 of the same days (jumping back to 21:00 on April 27th, and forward to 23:00 on September 7th).

OK, we have about three weeks to push this, so this is not critical for a change. I'll roll out an update this week. Upstream is aware. I'll post a patch tomorrow unless someone else beats me to it.
*** Bug 917117 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Do we have any news regarding this? I've received several calls from customers here asking for the update on the tzdata package.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Has been released this yet? We have 2 business days left and the last tzdata errata (RHEA-2013:0182) don't solve this.
Hi Petr!!! Is there any possibility to have this rpm finished today is very critic not only for one customer, we have almost 14 Strategics customer in the same situation is very urgent this is now escalated and we need provide answer to our customer what are expectations for get this rpm today.
Your help on this is very important and I'll be very grateful.
An erratum addressing this problem is being prepared now, and should be available soon.
This is a critical issue which will start affecting a few hundred of our customers deployments in ~55 hours.
I can understand the need to verify it seems like we're cutting it kind of close here. Is there an expected ETA on this fix so we can start scheduling resources to deal with it?
On a side note, what happened to the RHEL5 bug #912521? I'm getting access denied errors when trying to access it.

At this stage (RELEASE_PENDING) the bug is not in my hands anymore. I have no control over when the erratum will actually be released. It should be soon, but when exactly I don't know. Red Hat support can provide you with RPM's identical to those that will likely be released with the erratum (but without signatures), if that is acceptable.
I am need this parch for my server, plis free this rpm
yes, please free de rpm
Please any news of when the package will be available.
Alan, Sebastian, Jose,
as Petr said, please open a customer support case and the support personnel will be able to get you these packages immediately. The actual errata may still take some time, but we enabled all support associates to provide these packages to customers via support cases.

Dear Fabio, I opened a custommer support case but I did'nt receive any package or link for download it. Do I need to provide some other information than the bug Nº on the case???
Updated tzdata packages that add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 3, 4, 5 and 6.
The tzdata packages contain data files with rules for various time zones.
This update adds the following enhancement:

Alain, please send me your support case number via email, I'll check it and ensure you get the packages.
That said, Ray has provided the public errata link above, so by now you should see the updated tzdata packages on RHN.
Just to add what Fabio said, make sure to clean and update your repos before attempting to update:
# yum clean all
# yum update tzdata
That should do it.
Since the problem described in this bug report should be
resolved in a recent advisory, it has been closed with a
