Hi Emilio,

Please see below.  The observation is correct, of course -- the tool
needs to allow posting of correctly dated drafts from any timezone.

Hi Henrik!

We've received a ticket for the new IDST:

> Hi,
> There's a timezone-related bug in the new I-D submission tool,
> which did not exist in the old version.
> It flags a metatdata error thus:
> "Creation date 2011-04-26
> Creation Date must not be set after submission date"
> I am submitting a draft created a few moments ago, just after
> 17:00 (5 pm.) today April 26th, New Zealand Standard Time.
> Oh look, it's still April 25th in California - you guys are
> sooo backward :-)
> The tool needs to have enough tolerance to deal with submissions
> from the other side of the world, like the previous version did.
> (OK, I know the workaround, but this bug needs to be fixed.)
> -- 
> Regards
> Brian Carpenter
