Publishes of "t" : "p" appear to use timestamp of last location publish which makes them appear as duplicates when they are published.

Should we use now as tst for these?

Publishes of "t" : "p" use timestamp of last location reported by iOS which makes them appear as duplicates when they are published.
Rather than using now instead of tst, we may add "now" as a secondary timestamp, similar to "wtst"

I don't think we should add a second element to the JSON for now: it would a) complicate the issue and b) cause incompatibilities with Android.

Instead, I will document this. Closing.

I would like to bring this up again. Publishes of "t":"p" use last location reported by iOS (which is fine) and its timestamp.

Is it possible to replace the tst of those publishes by now() without adding a separate JSON element?

The reason I ask (again) is that I find it quite confusing to see a location report with an old tst in it, and I can imagine this will confuse others as well, in spite of our documenting it. :-)

If we can replace the tst by now(), I propose we should do so.
