[~szita],
   Can you review this one? You would be more familiar with the different forms of specifying
the timezone after PIG-4748.

> When using ToDate with a location based timezone (e.g. "Europe/Berlin") the handling
of the timezone offset is based on whether the timezone is currently in daylight saving and
not based on whether the timestamp is in daylight saving time or not.
> Example:
> {noformat}
> B = FOREACH A GENERATE ToDate('2014-02-02 18:00:00.000Z', 'yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.SSSZ',
'Europe/Berlin') AS Timestamp;
> {noformat}
> This yields 
> {noformat}2014-02-02 20:00:00.000+02{noformat}
> when called during daylight saving in Europe/Berlin although I would expect 
> {noformat}2014-02-02 19:00:00.000+01{noformat}
> During standard time In Europe/Berlin, the above call yields 
> {noformat}2014-02-02 19:00:00.000+01{noformat}
> In Europe/Berlin DST started on March 30th, 2014.
> This seems pretty strange to me. If it is on purpose it should at least be noted in the
documentation.
