Description Alexander Skwar 2006-10-11 04:37:28 UTC
Right now, the times listed on bugzilla are based on PST:

For easier reference, it might be better to have those times based on UTC instead.

Can't do that.

Comment 2 Alexander Skwar 2006-10-11 12:04:57 UTC
I'm curious - why can't the server time zone be changed? This seems to be a configuration option, as the bugzilla on displays times in a different timezone than this bugzilla does (on b.m.o it is PDT, while it is PST here. That's obviously not the same - at least it's a different name).

So, why can't the timezone of b.g.o not be changed? I'm really curious.

Note that I'm not after a user configurable setting - bug #149523 seems to be about having this setting be user configurable. So I doubt that this bug is dupe of bug #149523 as proposed by Jakub. Feel free to close the bug again, I'd propose WONTFIX.

Because it doesn't work properly, install your own bugzilla and try it. Please, go complain about this upstream, it's not our fault and not something we could solve.

Comment 4 Alexander Skwar 2006-10-11 22:58:26 UTC
Hm, how doesn't it work properly? Bugzilla at uses UTC, see - "Comment #1 from JP Rosevear  (developer, points: 21)
2004-01-05 14:15 UTC [reply"

As you can see there, they are using UTC.

How or what doesn't work properly? Is it, that converting an existing bugzilla database doesn't work properly? Or what doesn't work?
Comment 5 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-10-12 08:05:48 UTC
It doesn't work properly as in Bug 29668 or Bug 92437, i.e., we won't switch it to UTC because it is broken. Again, go complain upstream.
