Handling time skew for updating files

When dealing with a UNIX server in a different time
zone, the "overwrite if newer" option loses meaning.
A server in a time zone 2 hours earlier will not
update any files within the two hour window, while a
server in a later time zone will always update,
regardless - the client files are always that much
newer regardless of how many times they are
transferred. Therefore, for each registered server,
the user should be able to set the time skew. Thus a
client in Seattle can compare the time of the local
file with the time on a server in Chicago, adjust 2
hours, and determine correctly that the local file is
or is not newer.
Please have a closer look at the Site Manager. There you can
set a timezone offset for each server.
