>            Priority: Minor
> It would be great if the timezone element in Maven 2 could be extendend in a way that
makes it able to determine  the offset own its own as well as to be able to make adjustments
to daylight savings.
> The following suggestion from the Maven Users mailing list seems to be an interesting
approach.  Note: In addition to the posting from Ian Stewart I would like to add that I believe
that the offset element is not needed in case the timezone has a name and the dayligh savings

> Hi,
> Is there a way in Maven to adjust the TimeZone element in the pom.xml to
> daylight savings time?
> We have an international team and I like the fact that we can see on the
> maven generated web site's team list what time it is for a specific
> developer.  What I am missing is the automatic adjustment for example for
> my time zone which is in winter times -8 and in summer times -7.  I just
> made a global search and replace in my pom.xml but actually it would be
> more convenient maven could do that for me.
> Is there anything that helps me solving the problem or is this worth an
> enhancement request?
> Andreas
