Good rather detailed, yet quite readable article on leap seconds:
It also touches a bit on Unix, etc. related stuff, and
other related time and leap second technology bits.
(I don't 100% agree with the author's perspective, yet
the article quite well covers many relevant points of view).

And for bits on Unix etc. and Daylight Saving Time, and timezones,
one may wish to review (if one's not seen it):
