Subject: [proposal] timezone-aware timestamps enhancement
Date: Wed, 18 Mar 2015 10:13:55 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20150318081355.GH19138@xw> (raw)


Currently, AFAIK when scheduling something in Org-Mode, the timestamp
doesn't have a timezone.

Use-case example: Let's say Carsten Dominik schedules a meeting with
someone, then jumps on a plane and travels to some place that's on a
timezone difference of -/+ 3 hours. He will probably miss the meeting.

I propose one of the following alternatives:

* either all timestamps are considered UTC and they dynamically change
with the timezone of the system where Emacs is running
* timestamps come with timezone so the user can see what time the
meeting was scheduled at.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. I welcome any feedback on this
as I'm interested in how other people are solving this sort of problem.
