Even though the almanac data is calculated years in advance they are not printed years in advance. If the leap second was eleminated could the " MAN " just print the new years almanac adjusted by one second ? We use Long Range Almanacs and almanacs four years out of date by using " fuge factors". Could one just apply an adjustment before they are printed or include information for the user to take out data one second later ( or before ) ?
