Description Philipp Hahn univentionstaff 2014-07-28 15:46:35 CEST
For Germany a second setting "Busingen" is displayed.
Where does int come from?
Remove it?
Comment 1 Philipp Hahn univentionstaff 2014-07-30 12:33:01 CEST
> Businging is an exclave of Germany in Switzerland, which requires a different time-zone-entry for correct translation of UTC into locale dependent time:

$ for TZ in 'Europe/Busingen' 'Europe/Berlin'; do TZ=$TZ date -d "1980-05-01 12:00 UTC"; done
Do 1. Mai 13:00:00 CET 1980
Do 1. Mai 14:00:00 CEST 1980

So it might be confusing for the un-educated user, but it's required for correctness. We remove it anyway and risk their ire; they can still change it later using "dpkg-reconfigure tzdata".

The list of available time zones is created by "tzsetup" during package-build from "/usr/share/zoneinfo/zone.tab" by "gen-templates". The entry can be removed by appending "DE Europe/Berlin" to "tzmap.override".

FYI: No UCR variable exists for time zone selection, as the name is stored in "/etc/timezone" and "/etc/localtime" contains a copy of the compiled data from "/usr/share/zoneinfo/$(cat /etc/timezone)" (Bug #24090)
