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)
As a start it'd perhaps be nice to specify timezones anywhere we use the user's local time from preferences.
Add tracking keyword
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.
- Bug 62713 - wfDebugLog timestamp should show fraction of second (includes patch)
- Bug 14601 - Use wfDebugLog instead of wfDebug by default
