1186 # The proposed law agreed upon by the Knesset Interior Committee on
1187 # 2005-02-14 is that, for 2005 and beyond, DST starts at 02:00 the
1188 # last Friday before April 2nd (i.e. the last Friday in March or April
1189 # 1st itself if it falls on a Friday) and ends at 02:00 on the Saturday
1190 # night _before_ the fast of Yom Kippur.

1196 # From Paul Eggert (2005-02-22):
1197 # I used Ephraim Silverberg's dst-israel.el program
1198 # <ftp://ftp.cs.huji.ac.il/pub/tz/software/dst-israel.el> (2005-02-20)
1199 # along with Ed Reingold's cal-hebrew in GNU Emacs 21.4,
1200 # to generate the transitions in this list.
1201 # (I replaced "lastFri" with "Fri>=26" by hand.)
1202 # The spring transitions below all correspond to the following Rule:
1203 #
1204 # Rule  Zion    2005    max     -       Mar     Fri>=26      2:00    1:00    D
1205 #
1206 # but older zic implementations (e.g., Solaris 8) do not support
1207 # "Fri>=26" to mean April 1 in years like 2005, so for now we list the
1208 # springtime transitions explicitly.

2351 # On 1844-08-16, Narciso Claveria, governor-general of the
2352 # Philippines, issued a proclamation announcing that 1844-12-30 was to
2353 # be immediately followed by 1845-01-01.  Robert H. van Gent has a
2354 # transcript of the decree in <http://www.phys.uu.nl/~vgent/idl/idl.htm>.
2355 # The rest of the data are from Shanks & Pottenger.

2357 # From Paul Eggert (2006-04-25):
2358 # Tomorrow's Manila Standard reports that the Philippines Department of
2359 # Trade and Industry is considering adopting DST this June when the
2360 # rainy season begins.  See
2361 # <http://www.manilastandardtoday.com/?page=politics02_april26_2006>.
2362 # For now, we'll ignore this, since it's not definite and we lack details.

1228 # Decree Law back to the Knesset for second and third (final) votes

1235 # later (i.e. at 02:00 the first Monday after October 2).
