time: Time.String() can return "+0000 +0000" as time zone #11712
I guess this is due to
in Parse...? However, perhaps the fabricated location for +0000 should be UTC? It also seems system specific, as http://play.golang.org/p/NYpETX_L9a actually prints UTC in both cases.
(Dates returned from database/sql, at least with the github.com/lib/pq driver, suffer from this so it's not only synthetic.)
@rsc @calmh @ianlancetaylor did anything ever come of this? I ask because I'm running into a similar issue (posted on Stack Overflow about it if it's helpful to see), though I think I now understand why. I was seeing inconsistencies with how an RFC 3339 time was interpreted on my local machine vs. on a CI server (and on the Go Playground). Please bear with my examples to see if I understand correctly!
Since the CI server in question has its time set to UTC (as does the Go Playground), then UTC is set to be the location. Since my local machine does not have its timezone set to UTC, a "fabricated" location is set.
Those two examples are shown here: https://play.golang.org/p/mYkMhS9sJT (with the output I see on my local machine included).
If all of that is correct, I guess my last question is: is
Thanks for the help!
