Martin, thanks for noting that. Are you happy with
http://grml.org/faq/#timezone or is anything missing there which
might be useful for users of grml? Do you miss anything inside
grml-setlang/grml2hd which might improve the situation? Any patches
againgst the documentation (and of course against sourcecode in
general ;)) are highly appreciated from my side, because it's not
that easy to write documentation for users from developers side of
