Sorry for not responding earlier.
This all makes good sense.
However, the way things work right now, even after basic timezone
support has been added is that since we don't yet have the concept of
user preferred timezones, or the ability to display within a
particular timezone, the UI displays events on the canvas in whatever
timezone your browser happens to be in. Events w/o a timezone float,
but there is no facility to make the ALL events float (i.e. turning
TZ support off) or to choose what timezone to view you calendar in.
Can we defer those features for the next release, or do you think
they are a priority for this one? Again the features to be deferred
1) Turning off/on timezone support
2) Choosing what timezone to view events in on the canvas.
What we will have in 0.6 no matter what:
1) timezone infrastructure work done
2) Editing timezones for events in the Cosmo UI
