Yes... I've been following the discussion on the tzdb list about these
changes to the
Irish timezone and the breakage they cause. It's good to see that, at
least for now,
these changes will be reverted locally for OpenJDK.

My thanks to those who've put forward the case on that list for the
compatibility issues
these changes cause, particularly Stephen Colebourne.
