List of checkins should say which timezone the times are in.

This is especially confusing if you want to checkout a CVS tree at a specific
point, before or after a certain commit was made. If you don't explicitly give
the timezone on the cvs command line you end up with the wrong tree.
(I think cvs uses the local timezone, or maybe UTC? either way is wrong since
 bonsai.mozilla.org uses PDT)

I would actually appreciate if you could output the local time and timezone on
all Bonsai pages, then the above isn't needed since it can be assumed it's
the same timezone.

Simply outputting bonsai's local timezone at the end of the timestamp (the "When" column in bonsai query results) would be tremendously helpful, and it seems like it would be pretty simple.

Would it be possible to get a quick wallpaper for this bug on
bonsai.mozilla.org at least?  Just add "The dates below are in XXX timezone"
to the static part of the page at the top?

Changes between PDT/PST makes it even more confusing to use Bonsai for us
who do not live in the area.
