The United States has planned a change to its DST observance beginning in 2007. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 mandates that DST will start on the second Sunday in March and end on the first Sunday in November. In 2007, the start and stop dates will be March 11 and November 4, respectively. These dates are different from previous DST start and stop dates. In 2006, the dates were the first Sunday in April (April 2, 2006) and the last Sunday in October (October 29, 2006). Some countries are still evaluating whether they will adopt the new rules for themselves. You should anticipate more changes in DST and time zone rules for countries that typically align with U.S. DST rules. This may be old news to many of you, but may not. It also may be irrelevant for cvsnt, but it may not...that's what I'm inquiring about. Does this change effect cvsnt? Is there date/time related logic that need to be modified? I searched the archives, but found nothing. I have been notified by Sun about upgrading my jre/jdk to fix this, also by MKS, another scm system, so I figured it was at least a valid question. Does anyone know? Thanks, Mark
