Below are updated proposed changes to the time zone package; the summary:

	asia		Palestine suspends DST during Ramadan in 2011;
			Gaza and Hebron split in 2011, leading to a new
			Asia/Hebron zone (thanks to Steffen Thorsen and
			Alexander Krivenshev).
			(The different end of DST in Gaza and Hebron in 2008
			is also reflected.)
	europe		Belarus adopts permanent DST in 2011
			(thanks to Yauhen Kharuzhy, Alexander Bokovoy,
			Alexander Krivenyshev, and Kirill A. Shutemov).
			Ukraine adopts permanent DST in 2011
			(thanks to Alexander Krivenyshev).
			"Russia" rules changed to reflect end of use in 2010.
			"FET" used as abbreviation for Belarus, Ukraine,
			and western Russia (thanks to Paul Eggert).
			Also: a comment typo is fixed.
	northamerica	Updated comment on Newfoundland's 2011 change of
			time of day when DST starts and ends
			(thanks to Michael Pelley).
	zone.tab	New Asia/Hebron zone (thanks to Alexander Krivenshev).

I still hope to update the ftp site on 2011-09-26.
