I meant the other timezone *name*.
I think we don't understand each other:
- time.timezone is the offset of the local (non-DST) timezone.
- time.altzone is the offset of local DST timezone.
They don't depend on the current date, they depend only on the timezone database.
localtime() only gives the timezone for a given point in time, and the time module needs to present two timezones.
