FEDORA-2016-4764858ab5 created by pfrankli 6 years ago for Fedora 22
obsolete
  • Rebase to 2016b
  • New zones Europe/Astrakhan and Europe/Ulyanovsk for Astrakhan and Ulyanovsk Oblasts, Russia, both of which will switch from +03 to +04 on 2016-03-27 at 02:00 local time. They need distinct zones since their post-1970 histories disagree. New zone Asia/Barnaul for Altai Krai and Altai Republic, Russia, which will switch from +06 to +07 on the same date and local time. The Astrakhan change is already official; the others have passed the first reading in the State Duma and are extremely likely. Also, Asia/Sakhalin moves from +10 to +11 on 2016-03-27 at 02:00.
  • As a trial of a new system that needs less information to be made up, the new zones use numeric time zone abbreviations like "+04" instead of invented abbreviations like "ASTT".
  • Haiti will not observe DST in 2016.
  • Palestine's spring-forward transition on 2016-03-26 is at 01:00, not 00:00. Guess future transitions will be March's last Saturday at 01:00, not March's last Friday at 24:00.
