This test fails on Cygwin.
(format-time-string "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S %z (%Z)" '(0 0 0 0)
evaluates to "1970-01-01 12:00:00 +1200 (NZST)". Can you give me some guidance
as to how to track this down? I know nothing about how time zones work.
What does this shell command do?
TZ='NZST-12NZDT,M9.5.0,M4.1.0/3' date address@hidden +'%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S %z
On a working system with GNU 'date', it should output this:
1970-01-01 13:00:00 +1300 (NZDT)
If it outputs "1970-01-01 12:00:00 +1200 (NZST)" on Cygwin, it's a bug in Cygwin
not in Emacs per se. If so, perhaps we should just skip the test on Cygwin (you
might file a Cygwin bug report). If not, I'll have some other questions to ask.
