Subject: libxslt1.1: date:difference() timezone bugginess

Package: libxslt1.1

Version: 1.1.8-4

Severity: normal

The EXSLT function date:difference() produces bad values on some

inputs described here.  Basically, the timezone correction is applied with the

wrong sign (four hours are subtracted during GMT normalization when they really

should have been added).

Apply the following stylesheet to any XML document (the XML input is ignored)

using xsltproc to reproduce.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"

  xmlns:date="http://exslt.org/dates-and-times" version="1.0">

  <xsl:output method="text"/>

<xsl:variable name="nl">




  <xsl:template match="/">

    <xsl:variable name="start" select="'2003-02-19T10:56:10-04:00'"/>

    <xsl:variable name="end"   select="'2003-02-19T15:56:10Z'"/>

    <xsl:value-of select="date:difference($start, $end)"/>

    <xsl:value-of select="$nl"/>



The buggy output from libxslt1.1 is:


The correct output should be:

Since version 1.1.12-5 did migrate to sarge, these bugs which were only
in previous 1.1.8 version in sarge, but not in 1.1.12-5 in sid are thus
