Subject [jira] [Commented] (ARROW-413) DATE type is not specified clearly
Date Tue, 13 Dec 2016 20:25:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ARROW-413?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15746169#comment-15746169

Julian Hyde commented on ARROW-413:
-----------------------------------

I think you have to specify semantics. Does a date value represent an instant (implicitly
an offset from the UTC epoch) or is it a timezone-less value that each person can interpret
in whichever timezone they want (say, their local timezone).
