Subject Re: futon barfs when os is configured for certain timezones ….
Date Mon, 09 Apr 2012 14:22:11 GMT
Hi, Nathaniel Welcome to the UTC+7 party. If you are in Bangkok or
Thailand we should have a CouchDB meetup.

I also struggle with this. I feel like it was fixed in R14B04 but then
a regression, but I could be wrong.

I set the time zone before running CouchDB from a shell.

    export TZ=UTC

For production deployment, I have not encountered much problems
because servers tend to set the time zone to UTC regardless of
location. (At least the ones I use.)
