By default, the /usr/share/openssh/sshd_config file contains these lines

   |112 # Allow client to pass locale environment variables
   113 AcceptEnv LANG LC_*|

||I'd like to have the TZ variable added to the list on line 113.
That way when I travel, and connect to some remote cluster from wherever I am, the dates on everything will be relative to my current timezone. Note that, unless someone uses an explicit "SendEnv TZ" in their connection, everything would behave as before.

I've asked the managers of several of these clusters to add the TZ variable to the list. Most of them refuse to do it, under the assumption that it would cause a security breach.
I think that the change needs to be made upstream.
