Description Mark A. Hershberger 2011-06-01 20:59:30 UTC
Split off from Bug 27858 comment 6:

  Its unclear if this bug is the result of people being confused by localizing
  the time in the log excerpt (/me personally has never liked how we only modify
  some timestamps for timezone),

Whenever time is used in MediaWiki, it should be shown in a consistent matter.

This is a tracking bug to find areas where the display of time is not UTC or however we decide time should be displayed (e.g. the user's time zone)
Comment 1 Bawolff (Brian Wolff) 2011-06-01 22:00:55 UTC
As a start it'd perhaps be nice to specify timezones anywhere we use the user's local time from preferences.
Comment 2 Dan Collins 2011-07-09 22:03:44 UTC
Add tracking keyword
Comment 3 Stefan Harwarth 2011-10-28 09:39:15 UTC
It may be not exactly in the scope of this bug, but the wfDebugLog function always uses GMT and neither the OS timezone nor the $wgLocaltimezone. This behaviour makes it pretty hard to combine log files from Mediawiki and e.g. apache.
Comment 4 Daniel Norton 2014-03-16 17:19:22 UTC
 - Bug 62713 - wfDebugLog timestamp should show fraction of second (includes patch)
 - Bug 14601 - Use wfDebugLog instead of wfDebug by default
