-# From Kiraz Janicke (2007-09-25), in
-# http://www.venezuelanalysis.com/analysis/2645:
-# The proposal ... involves turning the clock back half an hour from
-# +4.00 Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), to +4.30GMT, the time zone
-# Venezuela had until December 31, 1964, when the current time zone
-# was adopted. The change was due to take place on September 17 and
-# then on September 24, but has since been postponed until December
-# 31, to allow for compliance with international organizations, such
-# as the International Office of Weights and Measures.
+# From John Stainforth (2007-11-28):
+# ... the change for Venezuela originally expected for 2007-12-31 has
+# been brought forward to 2007-12-09. The official announcement was
+# published today in the "Gaceta Oficial de la Republica Bolivariana
+# de Venezuela, numero 38.819" (official document for all laws or
+# resolution publication)
