Just thought you'd like to know:

test test_time failed -- Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/home/lemburg/projects/Python/Dev-Python/Lib/test/test_time.py", line 107, in test_tzset
     self.failUnless(time.tzname[1] == 'AEDT', str(time.tzname[1]))
   File "/home/lemburg/projects/Python/Dev-Python/Lib/unittest.py", line 268, in failUnless
     if not expr: raise self.failureException, msg
AssertionError: AEST

In case it helps: I live on the northern hemisphere :-)

BTW, the correct time zone names are: EAST and EADT -- perhaps
that's what's causing the problem ?
