I was a bit surprised the other day, when some software that uses Time::Zone reported my timezone (during daylight saving) as "MEST" since I've never seen this before. Outside of daylight saving it's unsurprisingly CET. Some research shows that ME(S)T (as in "Middle Europan (Summer) Time") actually exists as a kind of translation from German Mitteleuropäisch to English but CE(S)T - Central European (Summer) Time - seems to be more standard and preferred forms. Therefore I would like to ask you to consider switching from MEST to CEST in Time::Zone. Cheers, gregor
