To help you see if your database is affected by the Egyptian Government decision to not go to DST in 2015 and to see if you actually need a DST update (= "DST patch") or not for Oracle RDBMS.
Egypt implemented Daylight Saving Time (DST) during summer the last eyars.
Instead of going to DST as previously planned (= forward one hour at midnight between Thursday, April 30 and Friday, May 1, 2015 ), the Egyptian Government has decided not to make further changes to the clock in future years and use UTC+02:00 all year.
For Questions/official statements about the DST change itself, please contact the Egyptian Government .
