Leap second hiatus.

Bulletin A is a weekly summary of predictions from the latest Earth Orientation model. It includes the projected difference between Earth rotation angle (UT1) and UTC, which in turn determines when a leap second is needed. The notable thing about the latest Bulletin A is the factor 0.00000 (…) This implies that unless something wild happens, we are very unlikely to have a leap second in the next few years.
