P4DTI issue job000379

TitleP4DTI corrupts date/time fields in TeamTrack if server time zone is not UTC
Assigned userGareth Rees
DescriptionThe P4DTI corrupts date/time fields -- on every poll each date/time field gets advanced by the difference between the time zone on the machine running the replicator and UTC.
AnalysisTeamTrack stores dates in local time but the replicator interprets them as times in UTC. Use time.localtime rather than time.gmtime in the date translator.
This has similar symptoms to job000381, but a different underlying cause.
