While for some languages it might be quite clear the connection between the
Language and a good guess at the location, is this something we can actually do
in the general case, without causing nightmares?

What would happen if we selected timezones based on a language shared between
two countries that object to the other?  We will quickly have nobody happy.

Personally I think the default should be UTC until the map is clicked.
Comment 2 A S Alam 2007-02-07 23:14:42 EST
it is based on locale, as pa_IN is represent Punjabi_India, where *_IN is
limiting the area as India, and so timezone is clearly 1 and only 1  Calcutta.

Comment 3 Andrew Bartlett 2007-02-08 06:44:35 EST
Sure, but should en_AU be Sydney, Adelaide or Perth?  Should en_US be east or
west coast?  I still argue you can't win...
Comment 4 A S Alam 2007-02-08 07:50:15 EST
I think bug was only for pa_IN, not going to consider en_AU as it is very far
from my city
Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2007-02-21 14:59:44 EST
This will be fixed in the next release of anaconda.  It affects at least all
languages that anaconda cannot display during the initial stage.
