Our firm has installed a CVS-Server on a SUSE 6.3 Mashine and we have 
a problem (and in the long term, won't be the last) who's answer I 
cannot find in Karl Fogel's book "Open Source Development with CVS".

The Problem is :

CVS uses internaly a Timezone that is 9 hours before my local time. 
Our local time is Berlin, Germany (GMT+01) and the time used must be 
in Sydney, Australia (GMT+10). The file dates/time on the Linux 
Mashine is correct, but inside the files (where the version numbers 
are written) it uses Sydney time. 

When a checkout/update is done on a local mashine (16:45) , the 
date/time set is Sydney time (01:45) and the RCS-ID is GMT+8 (23:45). 
Both mashines have MZ=+1 set (W2K and SUSE Linux 6.2). The compiler 
will allways compile these files due to the differnce in the dates of 
the .obj and source files.

The questions are :

What must be done in CVS to assure that files written to the client 
will use the local time.
Should something be set so that CVS will use GMT?
