      Description

      I am having issues with timezones in Manifoldcf.

      1. The simple history always shows the time as UTC time. The sever time is correctly set to "EST" however all simple history is shown in UTC.

      looks like the timezone is hardcoded to UTC in simplereport.jsp:
      https://github.com/apache/manifoldcf/blob/release-2.6-branch/framework/crawler-ui/src/main/webapp/simplereport.jsp

      Is there a workaround for this?

      2. When I add a timezone to the schedule object of a job through the rest API it works correctly for timezone "America/New_York". However if I change the time in the UI it doesn't pick up the server time instead it defaults to UTC.

      Result all job schedules always run off UTC time when changed from manifold UI.
