Comment 2 Alexey 2018-11-19 21:48:21 UTC
The same in 1.8.25_p1-r1
Comment 3 Alexey 2019-08-10 10:24:03 UTC
Still happens on app-admin/sudo-1.8.27-r1
Comment 4 Lars Wendler (Polynomial-C) gentoo-dev 2020-04-11 12:38:29 UTC
Still happens with latest sudo?
Comment 5 Alexey 2020-04-11 12:45:05 UTC
Looks like latest sudo doesn't have the test phase at all.
Comment 6 Alexey 2020-08-23 13:15:42 UTC
But happens again in app-admin/sudo-1.9.2
Comment 7 Sam James archtester gentoo-dev Security 2021-10-29 11:44:43 UTC
Happens for me if I try TZ=Pacific/Auckland (thanks telans!) and passes for him w/ TZ=UTC. Let's just force it given we do this sort of thing quite often in ebuilds anyway.

Not that I love it.

    app-admin/sudo: fix tests with some timezones
    Force TZ=UTC for now. It's not ideal but we already
    have to do this quite often.

    app-admin/sudo: drop TZ=UTC hack from src_test in 9999
    Should be fixed in next release.
