Bug#501169: About the source of the DST change
I have just read the article, and it seems really like a bad idea to
have based the change on this.
The article only talks about gossip and off-the-record information,
not to mention that it's not a well known news source at all, so it's
absolutely premature to make any change based on that. Fact is, nobody
around here knows when the change will be, keeping with the long
tradition of unplanned, non-thought, and rushed changes :-(
So please, let's revert this very disruptive change, and let's keep an
open eye for the official announcement.
