we need to ensure that the foopy, bm-remote (webserver), and tegras are all on the same timezone and theoretically on the exact same time.

I believe the times are correct, but the timezones might be off.
Callek, now that we're on the new foopies, is this done? Or easily fixed?

Joel,

Can you tell me how we can check (and set if need be) the timezone on a tegra/panda. Also does said setting method persist across reboots? Does it need a reboot to take affect?

I'll handle foopies/bm-remote*

this is how we set the timestamp:
https://hg.mozilla.org/build/tools/file/546cfc026c18/sut_tools/installApp.py#l136

The timezone is similar:
telnet <ip> 20701
tzget
tzset GMT-08:00
tzget

This persists across reboots and I would recommend rebooting to ensure the OS is fully updated.  you can get/set/get without rebooting and it will work.

where does this (older than expected) bug fall on priority list, do we have evidence its a problem or are we just not verifying its ok?

I honestly have no idea, I suspect this is a lower priority and the action item here is more of a sanity check and a means to help prevent/detect problems.
