We seem to have added tzset() gimmicks to CVS Python.
test_time now fails on Windows, simply because time.tzset raises
Now Windows does support tzset(), but not TZ values of the form
test_time.test_tzset() is testing, like
environ['TZ'] = 'US/Eastern'
environ['TZ'] = 'Australia/Melbourne'
The rub here is that I haven't found *any* tzset man pages on the web that
claim TZ accepts such values (other than to silently ignore them because
they're not in a recognized format). The POSIX defn is typical:
and search down for TZ. There's no way to read that as supporting the
values we're testing.
Anyone have a clue?
