Description

According to the tzdata mailing list, tzdata 2018a & 2018b cause problems for OpenJDK and ICU (icu-project.org)

This is from tzdata 2018c/europe:

  1. However, in January 2018 we discovered that the Eire rules cause
  2. problems with tests for ICU:
  3. https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/tz/2018-January/025825.html
  4. and with tests for OpenJDK:
  5. https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/tz/2018-January/025822.html
  6. To work around this problem, use a traditional approximation for
  7. time stamps after 1971-10-31 02:00 UTC, to give ICU and OpenJDK
  8. developers breathing room to fix bugs. This approximation has
  9. correct UTC offsets, but results in tm_isdst flags are the reverse
  10. of what they should be. This workaround is temporary and should be
  11. removed reasonably soon.
