Starting in 2007 in the USA, daylight time will begin on the second Sunday of
March (formerly April) and end the first Sunday of November (formerly last
Sunday of October). I haven't seen any patch for this yet, and searches on
Bugzilla and Google reveal only "is SuSE doing something?", not any promises of
action.
This applies to all hardware versions and OS releases.
See bug# 223196 (Western Australia Daylight Time) for issues and problems
getting the last timezone patch out. Here are references analogous to those
requested in that bug record:
