      Description

      The POM XSD defiens the TimeZone as an xs:string (although the descriptions says an integer between -11 and 12)

      If the desctription is enforced you can not be in a timezone that is not a multiple of 1 hour away from UTC (e.g. certain parts of india)

      So the description is wrong and it's just a String.
      So why not support a full formatted timezone such as Europe/London, then the mpir can use funky javascript to show your actual time including any daylight saving offset. (as opposed to a fixed offset from GMT ignoring DST changes)

      e.g. support

      <developers>
        <developer>
          <id>bob</id>
          <name>Bob Hacker</name>
          <email>bob@example.com</email>
          <timezone>Europe/London</timezone>
          <roles>
            <role>developer</role>
          </roles>
        </developer>
      </developers>

      Currently the site shows NaN for the Current time.
