Because the timestamp file in the future prevents new configurations from
recognized as up to date.  If I had a way to force the time during the
%pre script to
UTC, this would not be an issue.

You mean your configuration management utility (if any) compares by
timestamp rather then, say, md5sum? You're not using Puppet/CFEngine/BCFG?

Not using Puppet/CFEngine/BCFG.
The timestamp file is created during the post install of the rpm.
This is used as a safety
check to insure that the configuration tool is run after install to
have an up to date configuration
with the existing config management utility - sanity check of the config file.

I have regularly seen files timestamped "in the future" after installation, and I don't do anything extraordinary. I always run my computers' clocks on local time.

I have always assumed, "Stupid Americans, they always think the rest of the world does things their way."

Having files timestamped in the future has never caused me any problem.

What configuration management tools are you using, Larry?
