  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset

To clarify the issue:

Dates that are coming from Django (when using USE_TZ = True) should be presented in users current time zone.

That means this should true (regardless of time zone used):

with timezone.override('Europe/Warsaw'):
    assert Template('{% now "H:i:s" %}').render(Context()) == timezone.localtime('%H:%M:%S')

Currently user is presented with date localized to default time zone.
