Hi Sherman,

Sorry for my late reply.

The fix looks ok to me.
But please remember to file an RFE about the hardcoded timezone IDs that Masayoshi mentioned. :-)

 >> I'm concerned about the 24:00 fix. Is there any way to produce the correct rules without hard coding time zone IDs?
 > I don't know how to do it, yet. I definitely can have a RFE for it and spend some time on it later.
