[New-bugs-announce] [issue3061] time.strftime() always decodes result with UTF-8

Georg Brandl report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Georg Brandl <georg at python.org>:

It decodes the system strftime's result using TZNAME_ENCODING which is
also used to decode timezone names.  This may be correct for timezone
names themselves (I don't know), but the strftime result is encoded in
the LC_TIME encoding - at least on my Linux system.
