Description

Hi.

In the 18th May 2007 verion of Haiku, when you set the time uing the Preferences/Time app, the time given (for Auckland/NZ) is two hours too early. For example, if the time for Auckland/NZ appears as 9.05am, it should actually be 11.05am.

As an aside, if you want to also set "daylight saving" time correctly for New Zealand, the Government here recently extended the period that it covers. It is now as follows -

a) It will now start on the last Sunday in September (add 1 hour). b) It will now end on the first Sunday in April (subtract 1 hour).

Cheers - keep up the good work!

Here's a news article about the change (to show that I'm not just making it up.... ;-) ) http://www.stuff.co.nz/4043386a10.html

I updated our tzdate to 2007f in hrev21372, I checked and it seems to include your timezone change. For the record, we don't manage ourselves the timezone data, but just integrate the data from ftp://elsie.nci.nih.gov/pub/ as other OS do.

Hi. Ok, thanks for this!

( I'm not sure if I should have reported this, given that (as you mentioned) it seems to be nih.gov's data that was the problem... ). Anyway, thanks for the fix, and keep up the good work! :-)
