Some Wikimedia projects in languages of India have Indian time defined as
the default time zone. Some don't. For precise info see:
Search that file for wgLocaltimezone. You'll see that some projects have
"Asia/Kolkata" as the timezone, for example guwiki (Gujarati Wikipedia),
but some don't appear at all, which means that their default timezone is
UTC. So for example if one goes to recent changes on the Assamese
Wikisource, then the times will show by default in IST, but on Assamese
Wikipedia it will be UTC.
I guess that at least some of the projects will want to switch to the
timezone of India. It's easy to do - a line for each project needs to be
added for each site, but this should come in as requests from each site's
If you have a few minutes, please check whether your favorite Wikimedia
uses the appropriate default time zone. If it doesn't, please bring this up
for community discussion, and if the community agrees, please request to
change it in Bugzilla (or just submit a patch directly to Gerrit).
If you need any technical explanation (for example, if you have no idea how
to work with Bugzilla and Gerrit), I am available for questions.
