Sorting it all Out Michael Kaplan's random stuff of dubious value Be sure to read the disclaimer here first!
Over on the BCLTeam blog, Anthony Moore has posted Time Zone Scenario Feedback Wanted.
Now I have mentioned before in connection with this hole issue about how Time zones make me cringe.
As I look at the potential list of features that Anthony has listed, I have not been cured of the cringe problem; if anything I am more nervous. :-(
My opinion, for what it is worth:
My cringing is mainly because there seems to be a strong desire to make sure that all of the features that can be added might be, rather than a cautious approach that perhaps slowly works to add features so there is time to assess the consequences more fully, for both users and developers.
I still have hopes that the right thing will happen here, but when the wish list is put in front of everyone for them to rate, it makes it sound like there may be some wrongness if the ratings are high enough for this most requested feature.... :-(
