America/Cayman will not observe daylight saving this year after all.
Revert our guess that it would. (Thanks to Matt Johnson.)

America/Metlakatla switched from PST all year to AKST/AKDT on
2015-11-01 at 02:00. (Thanks to Steffen Thorsen.)

Time zone abbreviations for America/Cayman have been changed from
EST/EDT to CIST/CIDST, as per the 2015-11-25 daylight-saving bill.

America/Santa_Isabel has been removed, and replaced with a
backward compatibility link to America/Tijuana. Its contents were
apparently based on a misreading of Mexican legislation.

# Cayman Is

# From Paul Eggert (2015-12-08):
# The Cayman government has decided to introduce DST in 2016, the idea being
# to keep in sync with New York. The enabling legislation has been published,
# and seems quite likely to be approved. See Cayman Islands
# Extraordinary Gazette No. 92 (2015-11-25), Supp. 2, which specifies the
# abbreviations CIST and CIDST.
