Currently git log mixes timezones in the date records in the same log, so the following dates wold appear in one log:
Date:   Thu Jan 16 17:11:28 2014 -0800
Date:   Thu Jan 16 20:10:04 2014 -0500

Timezone here doesn't help the log reader at all. It doesn't even reflect the actual location of the submitter. Instead, it should be converted to the local TZ of the client. This will make it easier to read and understand the time.

Even further, timezone shouldn't even be stored by the git server. It should just store the UTC time, following the approach how time is managed in most UNIX-like systems.
