Subject [jira] [Commented] (ARROW-316) Finalize Date type
Date Mon, 20 Mar 2017 18:41:41 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ARROW-316?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15933268#comment-15933268

Luke Higgins commented on ARROW-316:
------------------------------------

sure you don't want to account for leap seconds?  On CentOS7 for example unix time from date
command does give current UTC (which is adjusted for leap seconds).  If I am timestamping
events on my unix host and storing them the timestamp will most likely be UTC (modulo timezone
locale perhaps)
