I'm very glad to be able to do this.  Anything that helps make Bacula a better
project is fine by me =)

Well... mostly.

I've told the dashboard server process that it's in CET timezone, so any
future submissions will get shown from that perspective.

However, it seems that the timestamps in the database are stored without any
associated timezone information!  I'm not sure whether this limitation is in
the dart application itself or the derby database backend it uses, but it
means that all of the existing timestamps will be shown exactly as they were,
rather than shifting to reflect the change in timezone.  Quite a silly
limitation in this day and age, but there it is.

Luckily, the timezone information is at least present in the ctest data files,
so going forward all newly submitted results should reflect the CET timezone
