Hi,

   I thought few times where this subjects are belong to....

Then I decided to use core-talk instead of tech-talk and github issue. If you think, I am wrong, please let me know.

   Anyway, as you know, CONFIG_SITE_ENV in EPICS base has EPICS_TIMEZONE:

---- snip snip -----

# Time service:
# EPICS_TIMEZONE
#	Local timezone info for vxWorks and RTEMS.  The format is
#	    <name>::<minutesWest>:<start daylight>:<end daylight>
#	where the start and end are mmddhh - that is month,day,hour
#	e.g. for ANL in 2018: EPICS_TIMEZONE=CUS::360:031102:110402
#	The future dates below assume the rules don't get changed;
#	see http://www.timeanddate.com/time/dst/2018.html to check.
#
---- snip snip -----

I think, it uses the time zone abbreviation as <name>. And I could find them quite easily and quickly, However, if we can have the link in that file (CONFIG_SITE_ENV) in the same way of DST, for example,

```
<name> is the Time Zone Abbreviation;
see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_time_zone_abbreviations
```
it may give users an easy way to access them.

What do you think?

Best,

Han
