+### Locale
+Brooklyn expects a sensible set of locale information and time zones to be available;
+without this, some time-and-date handling may be surprising.
+Brooklyn parses and reports times according to the time zone set at the server.

+### User Setup
+It is normally recommended that Brooklyn run as a non-root user with keys installed to `~/.ssh/id_rsa{,.pub}`.
