[Mailman-Users] Timestamps in archive are +1 hr

The timestamps on messages in our Mailman archives are all 1 hour ahead of
reality. Any ideas?

I'm in the UK, where it's currently summertime, which is UTC +0100. Typing
'date' on our Mailman box gives
        Wednesday July 28 15:24:33 BST 2004
which looks correct to me.

I've found that I can fix the time by changing i18n.py line 60 (in the
ctime function) from
        year, mon, day, hh, mm, ss, wday, yday, dst = time.localtime(date)
        year, mon, day, hh, mm, ss, wday, yday, dst = time.gmtime(date)
and rebuilding the archives, but I don't want to leave this hack in place.

If it's useful to know, a test mail I sent at 1253 local time today had
its seconds-since-epoch set to 01091019325 by the time it got to the

Many thanks.
