[Calconnect SF] Timezone changes


I’m in San Francisco again, this time for the Calconnect Calendaring Consortium meeting, hosted by OSAF.

Cyrus Daboo just spoke about the upcoming changes in Daylight Savings Time in the US, which have impacts for calendaring software. The bill that got passed by the US Congress pushed the changes back to 2007, instead of the originally proposed 2006.

There’s some discussion about the fact that when this happens it will likely put US DST dates out of sync with the Canadian ones, which will make owners of devices pick between, for instance, US Eastern timezones and Canadian Eastern timezones.
