The AP story says + # DST will not be observed during Ramadan. There is no information about when + # DST will end. See: + # http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/el-sissi-pushes-egyptians-line-23614833 + # + # For now, guess that later transitions will use 2010's rules, and that + # Egypt will agree with Morocco (see below) about the date Ramadan starts and + # ends, though (unlike Morocco) it will switch at 00:00 standard time. In + # Egypt the spring-forward transitions are removed for 2020-2022, when the + # guessed spring-forward date falls during the estimated Ramadan, and all + # transitions removed for 2023-2038, where the estimated Ramadan falls entirely + # outside the guessed daylight-saving time. Ramadan intrudes on the guessed + # DST starting in 2039, but that's beyond our somewhat-arbitrary cutoff. +    Rule Egypt 2008 only - Aug lastThu 23:00s 0 -   Rule Egypt 2009 only - Aug 20 23:00s 0 -   Rule Egypt 2010 only - Aug 11 0:00 0 -   Rule Egypt 2010 only - Sep 10 0:00 1:00 S   Rule Egypt 2010 only - Sep lastThu 23:00s 0 - -  + Rule Egypt 2014 only - May 15 24:00 1:00 S + Rule Egypt 2014 only - Jun 29 0:00s 0 - + Rule Egypt 2014 only - Jul 29 0:00s 1:00 S + Rule Egypt 2014 max - Sep lastThu 23:00s 0 - + Rule Egypt 2015 2019 - Apr lastFri 0:00s 1:00 S + Rule Egypt 2015 only - Jun 18 0:00s 0 - + Rule Egypt 2015 only - Jul 18 0:00s 1:00 S + Rule Egypt 2016 only - Jun 7 0:00s 0 - + Rule Egypt 2016 only - Jul 7 0:00s 1:00 S + Rule Egypt 2017 only - May 27 0:00s 0 - + Rule Egypt 2017 only - Jun 26 0:00s 1:00 S + Rule Egypt 2018 only - May 16 0:00s 0 - + Rule Egypt 2018 only - Jun 15 0:00s 1:00 S + Rule Egypt 2019 only - May 6 0:00s 0 - + Rule Egypt 2019 only - Jun 5 0:00s 1:00 S + Rule Egypt 2020 only - May 24 0:00s 1:00 S + Rule Egypt 2021 only - May 13 0:00s 1:00 S + Rule Egypt 2022 only - May 3 0:00s 1:00 S + Rule Egypt 2023 max - Apr lastFri 0:00s 1:00 S      # Zone NAME GMTOFF RULES FORMAT [UNTIL]   Zone Africa/Cairo 2:05:09 - LMT 1900 Oct
