Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 440355
errata package needed for timezone update
Last modified: 2008-04-03 05:10:26 EDT
It turns out PHP includes its own timezone data.
Australia/Melbourne changed the rules for daylight savings recently, so the time
is currently being reported wrongly.
I'm hoping PHP 5.2.5 will fix this, since it includes a timezone update.
In light of this, it would be great if Red Hat released errata packages
including the timezone updates if possible.
Also note that any timezone rule changes in tzdata, etc, should flag a process
to create an updated PHP package as well.
(I'm currently using php-5.1.6-15.el5 on CentOS 5. My production servers are
still running RHEL 4.)
Thanks for the report. An update to the PHP package to switch to the use of the
system timezone database is scheduled for inclusion in 5.2.
