And yes it is RPM mis-feature that can never really be fixed.

Is there anyone around who wants to re-edit every *.spec in
existence to become "standard" compliant across time zones?

Even drawing a line in the sand, and saying henceforth spec changelogs
will use "standard" times, adds what is likely an intolerable (imho)
configuration change for every RPM based build system in the world.

And so it goes, strange and quirky.
