[slackware-announce]  glibc-zoneinfo US Daylight Savings Time changes

New glibc-zoneinfo packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1,
10.0, 10.1, 10.2, and 11.0 to update the timezone information to
account for the extention of Daylight Savings Time (DST) in the US.
This is an important update as any machine in the US (in an area using
DST) running Slackware 10.2 or earlier will otherwise have a system
clock off by one hour for a month starting on March 11.  It is strongly
suggested to upgrade this package before March 11, 2007.

Slackware 11.0 is not affected by this particular US DST issue, but
an update to the latest zoneinfo database is provided anyway.

NOTE:  All these packages are the *same*, but with different package
names.  If you're not concerned about that, you may use any one of
these packages to upgrade all your Slackware boxes, 8.1 or newer.


Here are the details from the Slackware 11.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/glibc-zoneinfo-2.3.6-noarch-7_slack11.0.tgz:
  Updated with tzdata2007b for impending Daylight Savings Time
  changes in the US.

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
