[Buildbot-devel] Waterfall timezone

For anyone who would like to modify the BuildBot display times, without 
changing the timezone on the whole server, you can do as I did and just 
change the timezone in your shell environment before 
starting/re-starting the master.

For example:
export TZ=America/Los_Angeles

I needed to do this since the BuildBot server is in America/New_York, 
but we're using Perforce(P4) from servers in America/Los_Angeles, and 
unfortunately, P4 doesn't properly account for timezones with it's CLI 
tools, at least not in the versions we're using.

Sorry for the late response, but hopefully this is helpful.
