Description Schnargel 2006-10-13 00:41:06 UTC
In parser.php the PHP function date('T') is used to generate the time zone information for user signatures. Apparently date('T') returns only 
abbreviations of English time zone names ignoring any existing names in other languages.

MediaWiki should either provide the possibility to translate these time zone abbreviations (in the MediaWiki namespace) or use the more neutral UTC
+/- notation (like "UTC+1345" instead of "CHADT"). Perhaps the best would be to have the +/-xxxx notation as default and to allow MediaWiki 
messages to override any possible of these.
