Update needed to 2022g/2022.7.1 as a new Mexican zone was added since
2021c/2021.3 due to Mexican changes conflicting with US practices, affecting
"The 2022g release of the tz code and data is available.
This release contains the following changes:
The northern edge of Chihuahua changes to US timekeeping.
Changes to future timestamps
In the Mexican state of Chihuahua, the border strip near the US
will change to agree with nearby US locations on 2022-11-30.
The strip's western part, represented by Ciudad Juárez, switches
from -06 all year to -07/-06 with US DST rules, like El Paso, TX.
The eastern part, represented by Ojinaga, will observe US DST next
year, like Presidio, TX. (Thanks to Heitor David Pinto.)
A new Zone America/Ciudad_Juarez splits from America/Ojinaga."
Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis Calgary, Alberta, Canada
