"Use GMT."

The name "GMT" has been deprecated in favor of the name "UTC" (Universal
coordinated time)(*). Thus, this string should most likely say "Use CET."

(*) http://www.ghcc.msfc.nasa.gov/utc.html : "Coordinated Universal Time
(UTC) is the international time standard. It is the current term for what
was commonly referred to as Greenwich Meridian Time (GMT)".
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2002-10-22 10:50:25 EDT
The documentation for CUPS says GMT, so printconf does as well.

And I'm sure you don't mean 'use CET'. ;-)
Comment 2 Christian Rose 2002-10-22 10:53:23 EDT
No, you're right, I meant "Use UTC".

I'll file a CUPS bug upstream as well, but I think this could be fixed
independantly in printconf.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2002-10-22 10:56:48 EDT
'GMT' is still a valid string---it'll be my time zone soon.

But UTC is clearer, I agree.

redhat-config-printer won't change until the CUPS documentation changes;
changing component.

Patch for sam.html has been applied upstream and will be in 1.1.17.
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2004-12-13 07:39:08 EST
1.1.17 has been shipped for a while now.
