Australian Eastern Timezones in Zope

Zope has had a well known bug with detecting Eastern Australian Timezones for a long long long time. Well today I got sick of detailing the workaround and created a Monkey Patch product for Zope 2 to fix it.

The problem is that Zope thinks that the EST and EDT timezones should be AEST and AEDT, well that's not what they're called, so most of the AU Zope servers run in US/Eastern time, which is very very very annoying.

So if you're in an Eastern AU state and you'd like your logs and times to be local without jumping through hoops, try downloading; ZAUTZ
