Erk, I put this in the wrong category obviously.

This patch is going to need some work, clearly, but we're not wild about the syntax to start with.  We're thinking that perhaps CHANNEL(tz) should be used to set the timezone and use that setting everywhere.

However, a clear use case for why you've added this functionality would help us greatly.  Would the syntax as described above work for you?

Before I re-work this, what do people think of this possible syntax?  My examples below only mention GotoIfTime, but can be applied to ExecIfTime in the same manner.  

Original syntax:

Proposed syntax:

Example use case:

exten => s,1,NoOp(Urgent: locate some support staff )

   ; this asterisk install runs on Melbourne time, so we can omit the timezone
exten => s,n,GotoIfTime(9:00-17:00,mon-fri,*,*?melbourne-support,s,1)

   ; this state (QLD) does not have DST
exten => s,n,GotoIfTime(9:00-17:00,mon-fri,*,*,Australia/Brisbane?brisbane-support,s,1)

   ; this state (WA) has different start/end dates for DST
exten => s,n,GotoIfTime(9:00-17:00,mon-fri,*,*,Australia/Perth?perth-support,s,1)

   ; finally call mobiles- put this last to avoid unneccessarily waking people up
exten => s,n,Goto(support-mobiles,s,1)

This syntax works fine for us, as we indicated on IRC.

Setting to feedback to indicate waiting for a new patch from the reporter.

In the second version of my patch, I have moved the processing into ast_build_timing and ast_check_timing - so the new functionality should apply to GotoIfTime, ExecIfTime and IFTIME.

I have not modified utils/extconf.c - which appears to have its own internal copy of both ast_build_timing and ast_check_timing.
