Description Mike Nerone 2005-05-12 15:23:10 UTC
I noticed conversation being added in a bug that I knew was fresh, but the time indicated it was almost 8 hours old. Here's a solid example:

In the activity log of bug #92359, observe the line where I added myself to the CC list:

       The true local time I did that: 2005-05-12 17:12 CDT
       The true UTC   time I did that: 2005-05-12 22:12 UTC
The Bugzilla-reported time I did that: 2005-05-12 15:12 UTC

Bugzilla seems to think UTC is on the U.S. west coast! :P (i.e. the reported UTC time is actually the PDT time).

Sorry, for convenience, I intended to provide a direct link to the activity log:

Alternatively, consider the time I opened this bug just a few minutes ago, which was *actually* at 22:23 UTC.

That's nothing new. Noticed the same when doing date -d 'fo:oo PST' quite a while ago.

Guess I just never noticed. Anyways, I guess it takes someone to point it out before it can be fixed, eh? :)

Fixed the time zone.
