678:    2:20:40 - JMT 1918 # Jerusalem Mean Time?    2:00 Zion I%sT    + # From Ephraim Silverberg (2002-07-07): + # + # The Israeli government today adopted a proposal by Minister of Interior + # Eli Yishai to shorten the period of Daylight Savings Time for the year + # 2002 (only -- the dates for 2003 and 2004 are, so far, unaffected). + # + # The proposed date to Daylight Savings Time is September 13, 2002 instead + # of the current date: October 7, 2002. The hour of changeover has not + # yet been decided. + # + # (2002-07-10): + # While today the Knesset passed the initial proposal to reduce DST by + # some three weeks, a new compromise is being worked out between + # Minister of Justice Meir Sheetrit and Minister of Interior Eli + # Yishai to revert to standard time for a period of 48-96 _hours_ + # (sic) around the Yom Kippur fast day (September 15-16) and then go + # *back* to DST until the end of October. The details of the proposal + # have yet to be worked out, but the second and final readings of the + # bill have until July 24 to pass. + # + # (2002-07-25): + # Thanks go to Yitschak Goldberg from E&M for bringing this (Hebrew) article + # to my attention: + # + # http://www.ynet.co.il/articles/0,7340,L-2019315,00.html + # + # Hence, the proposal to shorten DST was withdrawn yesterday and the timezone + # files that have been in effect since July 2000 are still valid for all of + # 2002. + # + # Please note that the article mentions that the Shas MK's intend to + # bring up their amendment for future years (2003 and beyond). What this + # means exactly is anyone's guess since there are no set dates yet beyond + # 2004 and the end day set for 2003 and 2004 is already the 7th of Tishrei + # (i.e. before the fast of Yom Kippur). The only thing they may want to + # change is the start date of DST in 2003 from Mar.28.03 (24th of Adar II) + # to Apr.18.03 (16th of Nisan) so that the Passover Seder will take place + # during Standard Time. The start date for 2004 is already Nisan 16th.    -  +  +    ###############################################################################      # Japan

This agrees with McDow's 04-07 at 00:00, + # but disagrees about the October transition, and makes it sound like + # it's not on a trial basis.
