when i checked in with her, list-mother Sara complained that her phone 
was still showing the wrong time at around 23h30 (utc+2).  well, no 
surprises there :-)

interestingly, the “common user” stuff does appear to be updated;  
eg.  https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/sudan/khartoum and 
https://time.is/Sudan and wikipedia correctly reflect utc+2.  now, 
it’s just up to OS vendors to release patches.

perhaps coming soon:  the central african republic, will switch to 
central african time  :-))
