pike.git/lib/modules/Calendar.pmod/FAQ:305:    Jewish or Hebreic    Maya       Of these, the two first are based on astronomical events,    which I haven't had the time to look into yet, but the    last - Maya - is totally numeric.      -------------------------------------------------------------------------      Q: I don't like that weeks starts on Mondays. -  Every school kids knows that weeks starts on Sundays. +  Every school kids knows that weeks start on Sundays.    - A: According to the ISO 8601 standard, weeks starts on mondays. + A: According to the ISO 8601 standard, weeks start on mondays.       If you don't like it, edit the Calendar.pmod/localization.h    file to use the Gregorian calendar instead of the ISO.       Or use Calendar.Gregorian.Day, etc.      -------------------------------------------------------------------------      Q: How do I find out which days are red in a specific region?   
pike.git/lib/modules/Calendar.pmod/FAQ:362:    research, which is a rather tedious job.       If you want to help, the check your region in the    events/regions file and send me <mirar@mirar.org> a patch.       Don't send me "the x region is all wrong!" mails without    telling me how it should look.      -------------------------------------------------------------------------    + Q: My timezone says it's DST. It's wrong. +  + A: No it isn't. But: +  +  o The local timezone detector failed to find your timezone by +  itself, or found the wrong timezone. +  +  o or you use the wrong timezone. +  +  To make sure the right timezone is used, use the standard +  timezone names. Those aren't "CET" or "PST", but +  "Europe/Amsterdam" or "America/Dawson". +  +  You can tune the default timezone by editing +  Calendar.pmod/localization.h. +  +  OR this may be in the future and you have a changed DST +  rule and uses an old Pike. Then you can either download +  a new version or download new timezone data files from +  the ftp address below (if the internet still is there). +  + ------------------------------------------------------------------------- +    Q: The regional events and nameday files are awesome. May I use    them for a project separate from Pike?      A: Yes. But send me <mirar@mirar.org> updates!      -------------------------------------------------------------------------      Q: The timezone information files are awesome. May I use them for    a project separate from Pike?      A: The timezone files are from a special timezone project,    ftp://elsie.nci.nih.gov/pub/    and are free to use, so it's not even up to me. They are    not altered from the tzdata.tar.gz files.      -------------------------------------------------------------------------
