Description

Currently, nginx access logs include a timestamp (via $time_local) which also contains a timezone. Nginx error logs, on the other hand, do not include a timezone, but rather the timestamp seems to always be rendered in the same timezone as the target system. This makes it difficult to unambigiously parse the timestamp on nginx error logs in a log aggregator such as Logstash.

It would be great if nginx error logs could include the timezone in addition to the timestamp.
