      Description

      The audit log currently produces time stamps like this:

      2016-11-15T12:12:34 UTC

      This is not a recognized standard for ISO8601.

      If the time is in UTC, add a Z directly after the time without a space. Z is the zone designator for the zero UTC offset. "09:30 UTC" is therefore represented as "09:30Z" or "0930Z". "14:45:15 UTC" would be "14:45:15Z" or "144515Z".

      Please consider the following patch to correct this:

      diff --git a/audit_log.c b/audit_log.c
      index 39078fa..4c3224d 100644
