RE: Wrong timezone.

I'm bewildered by the reactions on Karsten's mail. Maybe it is because he
doesn't really say what his setup is.

In any case, I'd fully expect that NT gets the right time from the CVS,
whatever its timezone, and wherever the server is. This of course requires
that both the NT workstation and the server have their timezone set

Indeed, the fact that CVS records times in UTC should help to achieve this.

There is no reason to expect that 'getting the timezone from NT' is
different from 'getting the timezone from Unix'.

So, IF Karsten's timezones are set correctly, THEN he has a bug in WinCVS in
my opinion.

By the way, I live in England, but it is Daylight Savings Time, so the time
is not UTC currently. I'm using cygwin, and the CVS version which you get
when using cygwin (NOT WinCVS). My archive is remote (on a Linux station),
but within the same timezone. My timestamps are all fine.

All the best,
