Some (Joey) indicated their possible intent to work on an expert option to allow for choosing UTC as "timezone". It is their choice to do it or not and if they (particularly Joey) do so, they won't do something else that could be a bigger benefit for our users. Anyway, neither I nor Otavio nor anybody else is responsible for their time so if they (again, probably Joey) feel like spending it on this issue, that will be fine by everybody. *This* is how Debian works.Debian is turning into a system which....people who contribute to Debian want it to turn into. No less, no more.
