#6516 ✓invalid

Daylight savings handling is broken in #<Method: Time(ActiveSupport::CoreExtensions::Time::Calculations)#+>

Reported by Jerome | March 4th, 2011 @ 01:06 AM


I don't know if this is a duplicate of an existing defect. Some of my tests started to fail today because of how daylight savings is being handled within <Method: Time(ActiveSupport::CoreExtensions::Time::Calculations)#+>

At moment it is daylight savings here in Melbourne Australia (GMT+11) but it changes back to GMT+10 in just under a month.

    The time calculation methods are sensitive to the duration that you add/subtract. If you specify a period like 30.days or 1.month it will keep the same time across DST boundaries, however if you specify a period like 720.hours then the time will change.
