Issue #6491 has been updated by zombor (Jeremy Bush).


Time.parse().strftime('%Z') outputs `UTC`. Notice I said "similar format". It should output a human consumable output like Time.strftime('%Z') does. If nothing else, the two identically named functions output two different things.

Bug #6491: DateTime.strftime('%Z') output is incorrect format

DateTime.parse('2012/05/23').strftime('%Z') should output 'GMT' (or a similar string). It outputs "+00:00" (or a similar offset string).
