    Hi,

    What is the timezone used at ftp://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/

    Basically, I need to know if those timestamps are in the same timezone
    used by the ruby changelog in cvs.

    I suppose a true rubyist can probably whip up a ruby program in minutes
    to automatically:

    1. getting date/time from:
    ruby --version

    2. grab the latest 1.8 branch changelog from:
    http://www.ruby-lang.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/ruby/ChangeLog

    3. parsing and displaying ONLY the list of new changes contained latest
    stable snapshot that are not in the currently installed ruby

    4. optionally emailing the report (daily, weekly, whatever)

    Yes, and it's JST, i.e. +9000.

    Theres actually a bot called CIA that takes requests from the ruby cvs
    and prints to the channel #ruby-talk on Freenode. I'm trying to get
    cvs-admins to install the script locally. Theres a module named Ruby-Cvs
    which someone(don't know who) recieved emailed from ruby-cvs@ and
    submitted to the CIA bot. Now the script is down. You might be
    interested in maybe a quick program with Ruby-Cvs t get any changes. I
    used the CIA bot to get information on changes in HEAD, and ruby_1_8.
    Bugs, expoits, new features, deleted features, and other interesting
    details were submitted in the CVS logs.
