And today we had the release of 2018c.

What I see from the announcement [0], the prior discussions, and the
diff (after "perlifying" the code), this just reverts the changes for
Europe/Dublin, as some software doesn't like negative DST offsets.

From what I see this is not relevant for libdatetime-timezone-perl;
not only did the tests pass with the +2018b versions, I also added
additional tests with Europe/Dublin now locally, and they also passed
without an issue.

So I guess we can go ahead with the +2018b versions for jessie and
stretch and save another patching trip.
