Package: shellutils
Version: 2.0.11-11
Severity: normal

The timezones EST and CST are somewhat ambiguous. When using
Australia/Sydney, displaying the current time produces:

$ date
Fri Jun 14 00:36:08 EST 2002

It would be nicer if it displayed AEST and ACST for the australian
timezones. At the very least it should accept them for input.

$ date --date="Jun 14 00:36:08 AEST 2002"
date: invalid date `Jun 14 00:36:08 AEST 2002'

Or, put another way:

$ date +%Z
$ date +%z
$ TZ=EST date +%Z
$ TZ=EST date +%z
