RE: glibc build - timestamps on syslog are in UTC/GMT

Hi Florian,

I have attached the zone information files for your reference, we do not have a flavor that runs on fedora or debian,

We tried both ways of setting TZ variable,

Using zone name eg Asia/Kolkata or specifying the filename itself ":/etc/localtime"

Please note that it works for a few zones like eastern central etc, but for others the timestamp goes to UTC/GMT

The logs of binary which calls this code is in GMT/UTC. So is there any specifics that we need to look at?

What TZ string do you use?  If it refers to a TZ file, would you please file a bug and attach it?

Are you able to reproduce this on run-of-the-mill ARM platforms such as Fedora or Debian, so that I could debug it there?
