Daylight Saving Changes (AU/Solaris)

I have had to chase up the various ways of resolving the changes to daylight saving for this year (due to the Commonwealth Games).

The solution for Solaris comes from The Good, the Blog & the Ugly:

The beginning and end of Daylight Savings in Australia is controlled by state goverment regulation, which means it can be changed at relatively short notice (except in Queensland, where it can not be changed, as the extra daylight will fade curtains and confuse dairy cows).

Question: Has or will Sun release Solaris patches to take account of changes to daylight savings due to happen for the Commonwealth Games in 2006?
Answer: There is an RFE (Request For Enhancement) for this, but we have not yet developed & released patches. If you are a customer and want to be notified when the patches are released, please log a call to this effect. You can reference BugID 6282969 to identify the issue.
