SubjectRe: Filesystems patch for Daylight Savings Time
Um, will this make DST happen unconditionally?  Most of Indiana, US, does 
not observe DST. There is one other US state that doesn't either, but I
don't recall which one it is.

I wouldn't bet too heavily on that one hour difference, either.
Historically DST has sometimes had a two hour offset in some places. If
you want to see a good DST implementation, look at the DST patches for
TOPS-20, but be prepared to study *long* tables of differentials.
Politicians play with the dates and differentials all the time, and
differently in different places.

Those who will not learn from history are doomed to reimplement it.
