Time zone bug




As a result of a failing emacs test, I came across the following:

$ TZ='NZST-12NZDT,M9.5.0,M4.1.0/3' date -d@0 +'%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S %z (%Z)'
1970-01-01 12:00:00 +1200 (NZST)

The same command on Linux yields "1970-01-01 13:00:00 +1300 (NZDT)", which is correct according to Paul Eggert (https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2017-04/msg00881.html).
