If it's deprecated, how come if I don't use it my CMs report all their time
in GMT?

The option time-offset is deprecated.  It has no affect on your packet cable
system or any other system you may be running.  This option may cause future
versions to throw errors.  I would suggest removing it completely instead of
setting it to a different value.

Dear Folks,

So far we have had
option time-offset 36000;
hard coded in our dhcp configuration.  However, this is wrong, as in
Australia we have daylight saving and this differs according to which
geographic state we are serving.

1. What is the effect of the option time-offset, in packet cable

2. If we set it to 0, or ommit it, what consequences may there be?

3. Would it be better to set this correctly according to which state
   we are in?

   Would the resulting one-hour change in time cause any problems
   twice a year?
