time: Parse unable to handle timezone offsets with seconds (+00:34:08) #4934
Trying to parse a time string like "0001-01-01 00:34:08+00:34:08" with the pattern "2006-01-02 15:04:05-07:00:00" fails with a: cannot parse "" as ":00". See http://play.golang.org/p/QFdTQ53Wol for small test case. Removing the seconds from the pattern and time string works. The time string seem to be legitimate enough according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zoneinfo where America/New_York as an offset with seconds before 1883-11-18 Zone America/New_York -4:56:02 - LMT 1883 Nov 18 12:03:58 I ran into this storing a Time struct in postgres as a timestamp with time zone. In my timezone I get "0001-01-01 00:34:08+00:34:08" storing the result of Format(time.RFC3339Nano) on an empty Time struct. I'd be happy to help out fixing this but as my knowledge of time issues is rather limited I'm not sure if it's only a matter of making time/format.go:nextStdChunk handle the seconds in case '-'?
