Re: Remaining critical bugs (IMHO)

Note that Debian currently tells the _correct_ time. The bug is that
POSIX specifies that systems should tell the _wrong_ time, by ignoring
leap-seconds. I think we have to fix it, by copying in the "posix" zone
information rather than the "right" zone information, so that Debian systems
work correctly in networks of Unix workstations, but it is really annoying
that we have to break the system for POSIX.
