Winter/Summer time change problem / recurrying events - any news ?

I already asked but nobody responded my question.

If I setting up a recurring event and within the period of  this event time is changing from Winter/Summer or Summer/Winter

the time of the event is changing as well.

But it shouldn't because regardless of the change it should still point to the same time. Some people won't understand it and say "It's ok!" NO!!! it's not OK. This problem must be fixed immediately.

For example, if I setting up a meeting at 9:00 because of this bug, it will change meeting time to 10:00. Maybe I'm wrong, maybe time will change when the change day will come and it will be back changed to 9:00 (don't think so).

Same with daily alarm, if I setting up alarm to wake up on time for example at 6:00 am, if then will be time changed .... will it wake me up at 5:00 ? NO!!!

It will still wake me up at 6:00 am (time will be changed +/- one hour).

If anyone meet this problem and solved it ..... please share with me how to do it.

I already asked Odoo help/support but apparently they don't care if you don't have a contract with them.

They won't fix their own errors/mistakes :)

So ......

Do anyone know how to fix this issue ? (My knowledge is still not good enough to do it myself :()

Any fixes available ?

If you have a 9am meeting, then go through a time change, it SHOULD change to a 10am meeting, shouldn't it - isn't that what happens in the real world?

Nope, if I have a meeting at 9.00am whatever happens and regardless how many hours time will be shifted, meeting will still be at 9.00am while calendar will tell you "meeting at 10:00am" which is not true so I will be one hour late ;) Time change shouldn't affect meeting time.

This is definitely a big issue and apparently nobody spotted it before. If you setting up daily alarm and must wake up on time to go to work .... and then there will be a time change, is your alarm will ring at the same time or +/- one hour ? YES! It will still show the same time so if you must wake up at 7:00 it will wake you up at 7:00 regardless not at 6:00 or 8:00 it should be the same with recurrent events. Whatever you do time should stay the same in the same time-zone. Of course if a person who must participate in this event but is in different time zone system should calculate the time difference but it should be visible only for this person(other tz) for example 7:00am my time will be 10:00 am of his time.

It's not mine or your problem, it's a problem in general because it affects all Odoo users. :) Considering to dedicate one weekend and dig up whole code. Maybe it's only a tz problem. If so, I'll try remove it ...
