+# From Jesper Norgard (2007-10-27):
+# The sister center ICARDA of my work CIMMYT is confirming that Syria DST will
+# not take place 1.st November at 0:00 o'clock but 1.st November at 24:00 or
+# rather Midnight between Thursday and Friday. This does make more sence than
+# having it between Wednesday and Thursday (two workdays in Syria) since the
+# weekend in Syria is not Saturday and Sunday, but Friday and Saturday. So now
+# it is implemented at midnight of the last workday before weekend...
