There were a couple over-zealous tests involving errno, and locale tests that I'd expect to fail, but one set of failures I haven't yet been able to rule out as a musl bug. Symptom: >>> time.strftime('%Z') 'GMT' >>> time.strftime('%Z', time.localtime()) '' The Python docs say these should be equivalent. The implementation is about what you'd expect: if the second argument to time.strftime() is omitted, it passes the results of C localtime() directly to strftime(); otherwise it builds a "struct tm" by "memset"ing to '\0' then assigning the public fields (which of course don't include a time zone). Bug? Bad assumption on their part? Nonsensical standard? Thanks, J. Welsh
