> It seems that some time zone abbreviations like {{BST}} for British Summer 
> Time silently just do not get accepted correctly by Oozie and the underlying 
> JVM.
> It would be great to:
> * emphasize in the Coordinator Functional Specification that it's best to 
> only use time zone format {{Continent/City}}, like {{Europe/London}}, or 
> {{America/Los_Angeles}}, instead of other formats like {{PDT}}, {{PST}}, or 
> {{BST}}
> * if the timezone is not recognized by Oozie, it's best to emit a {{WARN}} 
> log and suppose {{UTC}} instead of silently ignoring the unknown specified 
> timezone
