On my side can only confirm that upgrading from 2011d to 2011h indeed
changes the Egyptian timezone. So maybe we can simply push it to
About further updates for lenny/squeeze, we are in the period where
governments like to do this kind of change, so it's difficult to predict
what is going to happen.
Anyway for the current status, 2011h is in s-p-u, while sid has 2011j,
bringing DST changes for Samoa, New Foundland and creating a South
Soudan entry. 2011k is going to be released on September 26th, bringing
changes to Palestine and Belarus. So it looks like we can already upload
2011i for Lenny, and push 2011j to volatile just after. For Squeeze we
can go directly to 2011j. Can I already start with the upload to
o-s-p-u or should I open a bug for that?
