Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 266441
php timezone database
Last modified: 2008-05-21 10:31:39 EDT
Description of problem:
PHP 5 has a hard-coded copy of the timezone database in the "date" extension.
It should be possible to change this to load the data from /usr/share/zoneinfo.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release. Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products. This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update
Qe ack for RHEL5.2. The sooner we rid ourselves of multiple copies of the
timezone database the better.
This is also an issue for RHEL4 AppStack and possibly others.
