Hello everybody,

I got the suggestion to add the current date of the server to the /status API call. I think that this idea makes sense. Although the server's clock is usually synced via NTP, we cannot control whether this is true of the client. As an extra bonus the extra line would also mitigate problems with ntp on the server should they ever appear.

This will change the format from:

Connected as: ${id_token}
Rate limit: ${limit}
${num} slots available now.
Currently running queries (pid, space limit, time limit, start time):
// running queries if any

to the format:

Connected as: ${id_token}
Current time: ${date}
Rate limit: ${limit}
${num} slots available now.
Currently running queries (pid, space limit, time limit, start time):
// running queries if any

Are there any clients out that would be confused by this change? Otherwise I would implement the extra line from about end of October on.

Cheers,

Roland
