-# From Paul Eggert (2015-04-08):
-# For now, guess that later spring and fall transitions will use
-# 2014's rules, and guess that Egypt will switch to standard time at
-# 24:00 the last Thursday before Ramadan, and back to DST at 00:00 the
-# first Friday after Ramadan. To implement this,
-# transition dates for 2015 through 2037 were determined by running
-# the following program under GNU Emacs 24.4, with the results integrated
-# by hand into the table below. Ramadan again intrudes on the guessed
-# DST starting in 2038, but that's beyond our somewhat-arbitrary cutoff.
-# (let ((islamic-year 1436))
-# (while (< islamic-year 1460)

+# http://english.ahram.org.eg/WriterArticles/NewsContentP/1/128195/Egypt/No-daylight-saving-this-summer-Egypts-prime-minist.aspx
+# "Egypt's cabinet agreed on Monday not to switch clocks for daylight saving
+# time this summer, and carry out studies on the possibility of canceling the
+# practice altogether in future years."
+#
+# From Paul Eggert (2015-04-20):
+# For now, assume DST will be canceled. Any resumption would likely
+# use different rules anyway.
