Re: 2017-03-06- UTC, TImeZone, DayLight Saving Shifts, Enconding

Hi, all,

FYI - this was all discussed on the IETF main list, starting with a post
on Dec 31, 2016:

We went down all these roads before (including TAI, UTC, and local time).

The real problem, as noted by Michael, is that Unix time is "none of the
above" and has no simple conversion to the above.

And that the IETF doesn't govern the definition of Unix time.

However, I'm pulling together a draft on the this issue in order to
cache this information for future users.

Those interested in collaborating are encouraged to contact me off-list
directly. I'll try to pull in some folks from the Dec/Jan IETF
discussion as well.
