Re: Needed input from Australian users and developers:; choosing timezones for Australia in D-I

I agree with the other Australians in the thread; the east-coast
timezones are currently all the same but might not be in the future so
we shouldn't rely on them being the same and we should allow selection
of Australia/Sydney vs Australia/Melbourne.

I would suggest doing what Ubuntu do for timezone & locale selection;
have a geographical map that you click on that picks you a timezone
and probable locale bits. It could even zoom in to a specific region
for selection of those weird timezones like Eyre Highway. Obviously
this would only work for g-i not the text-based installer. The
text-based installer could use the GNOME strategy of providing a
search box to input your city/country and a list of possibly
corresponding timezones/locales.
