time: RFC1123 format should not say "UTC" #13781
after reading a couple of times the RFC1123 i think that strings returned by time.Format(time.RFC1123) is not correct
searching around i found a post that reflect mo opinions about
i know that the format already exist and is "http.TimeFormat" but what i want to point out is that the term "time.RFC1123" is wrong/inexact and just bring more confusion
Looking at RFC 1123 and RFC 822, it does seem that a date in that format should say "GMT" or "UT" but not "UTC". I think it would probably be a mistake to change the behavior of time.RFC1123 at this point, but we could at least document the discrepancy. Note that the RFCs recommend the use of what Go calls time.RFC1123Z.
