This may perhaps not only lead to curiosities, like messages from the future, but may perhaps lead to technical problems, to communication breakdowns during communication?
I made a connection request between from Diaspora account here https://pod.geraspora.de
and Hubzilla account on https://hub.hubzilla.de
. Although only a few seconds passed between contact request and opening the "New Connections" dialog, Hubzilla showed me "added your channel about 2 hours from now", so a message from the future
Hubzilla obviously detected a difference of 2 hours (maybe on the communicating servers Hubzilla and Diaspora?). This may perhaps not only lead to curiosities, like messages from the future, but may perhaps lead to technical problems, to communication breakdowns during communication?
Is there perhaps a need for action on the developer side here?
1) In the "Connections:" dialog - screenhshot 2
- the time of the connection request is obviously correctly determined in contrast to the "New Connections" dialog.
2) Screenshot 1 is created immediately after the connection request. Screenshots 2 and 3 are taken 34 minutes after the connection request.
