      Description

      Root problem is incorrect time zone written into PDF when system time zone has minutes (e.g., IST +05:30), in our case it subsequently manifests as PDF/A validation failure.

      This is because of trivial bug at https://svn.apache.org/viewvc/pdfbox/trunk/xmpbox/src/main/java/org/apache/xmpbox/DateConverter.java?revision=1871492&view=markup#l325 - should divide by 60000 milliseconds to get minutes, but divides by 1000000 instead, resulting in incorrect time zone serialization of +05:01.
