Description

This updated package addresses the following change to Daylight Saving Time (DST) observations :

  • although DST was previously announced as beginning in Pakistan on 2010-01-04, it has now been confirmed Pakistan will not observe any DST in 2010. (BZ#577710, BZ#577835, BZ#577837)

  • after observing DST as a trial in 2009, Bangladesh announced it will not observe DST in 2010. (Previous announcements had Bangladesh switching to DST on 2010-04-01. This will now not happen.) (BZ#576268, BZ#576613, BZ#576614)

  • Tunisia did not observer DST in 2009, remaining on UTC+1. On 2010-02-27, it was announced Tunisia would also not observe DST in 2010. (BZ#577793, BZ#577841, BZ#577842)

  • On 2010-03-28, the number of time zones used in Russia was reduced from eleven to nine. Two regions -- the Samara Oblast and the Udmurt Republic -- were switched from UTC+4 to UTC+3. Two others regions -- the Kamchatka Krai and the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug -- were switched to UTC+11. (BZ#576268, BZ#576613, BZ#576614)

  • On 2010-03-17, it was announced Syria would move to DST on 2010-04-02 at 00:00. This is one week later than the previously gazetted date of 2010-03-26. (No BZ#)

  • DST transition dates and times for several Australian Antarctic Stations were changed. Casey station switched back to UTC+8 on 2010-03-10; Davis Station switched back to UTC+7 on 2010-03-10. Macquarie Island station will remain at UTC+11 and will not switch back to UTC+10 when Tasmania ends its DST observance on 2010-04-04, as was previously gazetted. (No BZ#)

  • as announced on 25th March 2010, DST in the Gaza Strip will start on 2010-03-27 at 00:01. This is 24-hours after DST begins in the West Bank and Israel. (No BZ#)

  • Samoa
