Describe the enhancement and the motivation for it.

Instead of configuring reviewboard with a server timezone, why not always configure the server in UTC? You can then make reviewboard timezone-aware for any browser. The simple way to do this in Javascript is
var offset_hours = -new Date().getTimezoneOffset()/60;

This removes the burden on users (and reviewboard) to manage a preference setting which is redundant to the setting already on their browser's OS. It also results in cleaner data, because persisted timestamps should always be in UTC.

What operating system are you using? What browser?
