screenshot showing Date and Time dialog without a time zone displayed

Description of problem:
During installation, the time zone is selected, but during firstboot the time zone is not displayed in any form in the Date and Time dialog.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Presumably always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F18 in a VM:
   $ qemu-kvm -m 1024 -hda f18-test-2.img -cdrom ~/xfr/fedora/F18/F18-Alpha/RC3/Fedora-18-Alpha-x86_64-netinst.iso -vga qxl -boot menu=on
2. Reboot.
3. Proceed in firstboot to the Date and Time dialog.
Actual results:
See attached screenshot.

Expected results:
The time zone is displayed.

Additional info:
If the firstboot Date and Time dialog is going to ask the user to set the time, why not also ask the user to set the time zone?

Comment 1 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2013-10-14 05:18:55 EDT
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Comment 2 Vratislav Podzimek 2013-10-14 06:43:09 EDT
The firstboot utility is deprecated and no longer developed in Fedora 19 and newer releases. It was replaced by the initial-setup utility with a completely different codebase. If you still have any similar problems with Fedora 19 or later, please file a new bug against initial-setup or gnome-initial-setup if you did a GNOME install.
