Nit: file timestamps are not dependent on the timezone and packaged
files timestamps are set to when the package was built.
This is only partly true — some files are created at package install
time, or by the installer itself.
This is generally only a problem when these turn out to have timestamps
in the future. That could be solved by automatically back-dating them
(several mechanisms possible) to at least the previous day (maybe a
time fixed per anaconda build?) but that would be confusing too.
