      N/A - covered by unit tests

      In case you really wanted it tested by a human:

      1. Install a complete language pack other than English (with timezone names sufficiently different so they can be recognized)
      2. Go to language customization and load the language
      3. Select file timezones.php under core
      4. Customize strings which are not translated (You can just append something  to the string rather than translating it or just change contitnent) and save.
      5. Edit your profile
      6. Change language to the one you customized.
      7. Then examine the timezone selector and check that the options are all translated/customized.

      Description

      Times change, but lang/en/timezones.php remains the same. There have been a number of new time zones added to tzdata since the list of translation strings was last revised (~2010). These time zones appear in English on the edit user profile page in all languages. The list needs to be updated to allow them to be translated. Having partially translated lists causes usability problems due to incorrect ordering. See https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=396226
