Subject [jira] Resolved: (LANG-165) [lang] parseDate with TimeZone
Date Fri, 19 May 2006 18:23:30 GMT

Henri Yandell resolved LANG-165:

    Resolution: Won't Fix

I'm resolving this as a WONTFIX because I can't see a non-hacky way to implement it and I
believe it's best for hacky solutions to remain in the apps, not the libs.
