I think this is just a simple conflict. :) It's odd that it happens only
with News/weekly, though. There's probably some #use wml::debian::ctime
missing somewhere, so footer picks up the Perl POSIX lib's ctime() instead
of our ctime().

Which kinda begs the question: why do we have that function named after
a common C/Perl function if it's different? Or, if it's not different, why
don't we use the system's one?
