PiWare Local Time

I am new to PiWare and was looking at the logs and saw their time is based on UTC:
pi@piaware:~ $ ls -l /etc/localtime
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 27 Sep 20 09:32 /etc/localtime -> /usr/share/zoneinfo/Etc/UTC

I just wanted to check and see if I need to change the TimeZone on the Raspberry Pi or is it better to keep the UTC time for information it gathers and the communication with other systems?

sudo piaware-config will allow you to simple change the timezone.
Set it to whatever is more convenient for you.

piaware doesn’t use the local clock for MLAT.
