We have a large WordPress multisite network, all sites are using "America/Sao_Paulo" as timezone, its reporting as we are in DST but we do not have more daylight saving times. We need this fixed asap.

For others' information WordPress doesn't maintain list of timezones and DST transitions in its code. It relies on upstream PHP functionality for it, which includes so-called Olson database.

Database version can be checked in phpinfo() and can be updated by updating PHP itself or installed as separate timezonedb package from PECL.
