Comment (by ijc):

 What is the process for release notes? Are they just accumulated in
 [https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Release_Notes_-_30 Release Notes - 30] until
 the release? I assume it would be inappropriate to add an entry for this
 issue while the fix remains unmerged so I'll propose some wording here

 I propose the following for either
 Special Notices & Instructions] or a (currently non-existent) "Python" or
 perhaps "Language Bindings" section:

 > The {{{MythTV.utility.posixtzinfo}}} class in the Python language
 bindings, used internally by {{{MythTV.utility.datetime}}} now correctly
 handles tzinfo databases with an extremely large initial offset or LMT
 (Local Mean Time) entries, meaning it no longer produces incorrect times
 for timezones away from UTC/GMT. Local scripts using either of these
 classes should be examined and any workarounds for this issue removed.
