Subject Re: New reporter UI

Looks good.

One suggestion: please fix the time zone translation for the release dates.
The browser is converting the timezone to its local time zone, but these
dates are date/times, they are just dates, and should not be converted
based on time zone. This is annoying because different viewers in time
zones west of UTC will show release dates that are one day earlier than the
actual release date.

This was fixed in the "Manage release versions" page, but it was never
fixed in the "Last release was X.Y.Z, released on ddd MMM DD YYYY" part or
in the "Releases" section of the "Report template". I'm not sure the exact
fix, but it seems like it just needs to always present as UTC (since that's
the zone assumed when the raw date string is parsed), regardless of the
browser's time zone.

The only other place a date appears to be shown is "Next report date", and
it looks like that's correctly not doing any time zone translation.

It's not a serious issue, but it's annoying. :)
