Bug#165457: ITP: tz-brasil -- Automatically corrects the clock according to Brazilian rules

  Description     : Automatically corrects the clock according to Brazilian rules

  In Brazil, we have a problem with the PC clocks... every year in the
summer, the clock is changed to a offset (GMT-2hr) and then in the
autumn the clock turns back to the regular (GMT-3hr) offset.

  Every year the day this offset begin and the day it will end are
different, so must edit the timezone information and compile it with
"zic" program every year.

  I intend to design this package "tz-brasil", so that it gets the
information from a server and corrects the clock every year.

  (Please don't discuss this crazy clock system of my country. I also
don't like it... I'm just making a package to have the right timezone
information in my PC)
