IntroductionAs you know government of Armenia announced a decision on 1/2012 that Armenia will remain permanently on "Winter Timer". As a consequence time on Mac OS X 10.6.8 and many other operating systems like Windows, GNU Linux (Ubuntu) the time was shown incorrectly i.e. it was behind of the actual time.
My bug to Apple filed on 22-May-2012
Summary: System time is an hour ahead of the actual time.
Steps to Reproduce: Set the time to updated automatically with the time zone of Yerevan, Armenia
Expected Results: It should be like here http://www.worldtimeserver.com/current_time_in_AM.aspx
Actual Results: The system time is an hour ahead

Engineering has provided the following information:
We believe this issue has been resolved in OS X 10.7.4. Please verify this issue with OS X Lion 10.7.4 and update this report with your results.
Note that the configuration summary indicates the problem was reported against 10.6.8, in which case the one hour discrepancy would be expected on 10.6.8 since that release predates the Armenian government's recent announcement (1/2012) that the country will remain permanently on "winter time". Thus in the summer months 10.6.8 systems in Armenia will always be 1 hour ahead of actual time.
This issue is resolved in recent releases of OS X that incorporate more recent changes in Time Zone Data. The latest update of OS X Lion contains a Time Zone Data update that observes the new Time Zone schedule in Armenia (i.e. permanent adoption of Winter Time with no further Daylight Savings Time changes ).
OS X 10.7.4
