Hi heasley, the timezone is configured properly.
Still, rancid logs show the correct time, but cvs doesn't.
I have configured the TZ environment variable but that didn't change anything.

It uses the system timezone by default.  you can change the global system
timezone (do not ask this list how to do that) or in your rancid.conf
and/or shell dot files often by setting the TZ environment variable (again,
do not ask here about how to do that - google or ask a list associated with
your O/S).
