Description Brian Lane 2015-10-21 23:16:43 UTC
During an image install time_initialize is called, running hwclock --hctosys --localtime and the host's time is changed.

Comment 1 Brian Lane 2015-10-21 23:18:37 UTC
Proposed patch - https://github.com/rhinstaller/anaconda/pull/422

Comment 2 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2015-10-21 23:20:12 UTC
Proposed as a Freeze Exception for 23-final by Fedora user bcl using the blocker tracking app because:

 Would be nice not to make the host system's time jump around when creating images.

Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2015-10-22 17:43:52 UTC
Discussed at 2015-10-22 freeze exception review meeting: https://meetbot-raw.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2015-10-22/f23-fe-review.2015-10-22-17.30.log.txt . Accepted as a freeze exception issue: always good to avoid fiddling with the host clock when it's not necessary.

BTW, I think there might be another report of this somewhere. I'll try and find it.
