No, not fixed.

Keeping patch dates in UTC *corrupts* the date.

I'll ask people to stop using patchworks if it cannot keep track of
emailed dates. The date very much is a local time WITH A TIMEZONE.

And it does matter.

No. The date from the email was

Date: Fri, 7 Jun 2013 15:42:54 +1000

and we want *that* date. Not some random date that patchwork makes up
that has no relevance.

I know you have that date, because it shows up when asking for the
headers in patchwork. Just use the right one, don't make up incorrect
