Merge branch 'timezones' into 'master'

Changing your time zone

Added doc and link in workflow to how to change your time zone in Gitlab.

I used the following documents as reference. Please double check that the instructions I wrote are correct.

I found that several users have this same issue, that they don't know how to change their time zone:

# Changing your time zone
GitLab defaults its time zone to UTC. It has a global timezone configuration parameter in config/application.rb.
To update, add the time zone that best applies to your location. Here are two examples:
```
gitlab_rails['time_zone'] = 'America/New_York'
```
or
```
gitlab_rails['time_zone'] = 'Europe/Brussels'
```
After you added this field, reconfigure and restart:
```
gitlab-ctl reconfigure
gitlab-ctl restart
```
