is that DateTimeZone.py has the wrong changeover points for DST for

DateTime so this
is a fairly critical issue.
A new version of this file though can probably be
used by nearly all the zope 2.x versions out there so once fixed it
an easy patch. I just didn't want to change the numbers directly
since I had
hoped there was some automated tool that generated that file so I
screw things up trying to modify it directly.
If you can figure out what to change, then go for it. I don't know
what the format of that data is or how to modify it. Unfortunately,
this is not generated automatically. I imagine it is out of date for
other locales as well.
I was planning to look at this eventually. (I used some nasty hacks
in some of our older applications to get around this.) I was
planning to rip out the current time-zone code and data and add logic
to use pytz:
I think this would be the better approach in the long, and probably
even medium, term. I don't think I'll have time to work on this soon
