The patch you installed added the following four lines around line 1035
in Mailman/Archiver/HyperArch.py.

        date = float(date)
        date = time.gmtime(date)
        date = time.strftime("%b %d %Y - %H:%M:%S",date)
        date = CGIescape(date, self.lang)

If you change

        date = time.gmtime(date)
        date = time.localtime(date)

you'll get local time.
