Package: tzdata
Version: 2010l-1
Severity: normal
File: /usr/share/zoneinfo/Australia/Sydney

the zone names for daylight asavings are the same as for winter time
this causes ambiguity.

$ export TZ=Australia/Sydney

$ date -d '@1301756400' 
Sun Apr  3 02:00:00 EST 2011

$ date -d '@1301760000' 
Sun Apr  3 02:00:00 EST 2011

two distinct times with identical "human readable" representation.
some people may find that confusing.

(the instants used above are one hour before, and at, the end of daylight

I get the feeling that the daylight-saving timezone is misnamed

Australia/Sydney is not the only Australian zone involved, they should
all be checked.
