The Caracas, Venezuela timezone changed from GMT-4 to GMT-4:30 on 9 December 2007. See the Venezuela section from version 2008i of the tz data below.

The attached patch corrects the offset in Rails' list of timezones.

 been brought forward to 2007-12-09.  The official announcement was
 published today in the "Gaceta Oficial de la Republica Bolivariana
 de Venezuela, numero 38.819" (official document for all laws or
