openSUSE Recommended Update: timezone: glibc timezone/DST update to 2010l

Announcement ID: openSUSE-RU-2010:0569-1
Rating: important
References: #607532 #615937
Affected Products:
openSUSE 11.3
openSUSE 11.2

An update that has two recommended fixes can now be
installed. It includes one version update.


This update fixes zic -l to copy the timezone also
correctly when hardlinking fails (due to /usr being on a
separate partition) (bnc#607532)

* DST changes: Africa/Cairo (Egypt) and Asia/Gaza
(Palestine) do not use daylight saving during the month
of Ramadan in order to prevent Muslims from fasting one
hour longer.

Africa/Casablanca (Marocco) has spent the period from May
2 to Aug 8 using daylight saving. Marocco adopted regular
daylight saving, but the start and end dates vary every

America/Argentina/San_Luis (Argentina region) local
government did not terminate its DST period as planned and
instead decided to extend its use of the UTC-3 time

* New zones: America/Bahia_Banderas (Mexican state of
Nayarit) has declared that it is to follow the UCT-6 time
instead of UCT-7, with the aim to have the same time as
the nearby city of Puerto Vallarta.

* Historical changes: Asia/Taipei information on DST usage
listed 1980 as one year using DST, which should read 1979
instead according to government resources.

Europe/Helsinki, before switching to Central European
standard DST in 1983, trialled DST for two years. However,
the database omitted to specify that in these trials of
1981 and 1982, switches have been made one hour earlier
than in 1983.

* Spelling changes in Micronesia: Pacific/Truk has been
renamed to Pacific/Chuuk in 1989.
