[GeoNode-devel] Tests and timestamps with tzinfo

 I wanted to use tz-aware timestamps in GN, and set USE_TZ to True. I've 
noticed however that tests are failing after that, in setup code:

in setUp
 File "geonode/geonode/base/populate_test_data.py", line 206, in create_models
 File ".virtualenvs/geonode/lib/python2.7/site-packages/django/db/models/
fields/__init__.py", line 1476, in get_prep_value
   value = timezone.make_aware(value, default_timezone)
 File ".virtualenvs/geonode/lib/python2.7/site-packages/django/utils/
timezone.py", line 358, in make_aware
   return timezone.localize(value, is_dst=None)
 File ".virtualenvs/geonode/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pytz/tzinfo.py", line 
309, in localize
   loc_dt = dt + delta
OverflowError: date value out of range

 I've checked geonode.base.populate_test_data.create_models() and noticed that 
dates are fixed in code[1] to values like: 1900-06-03, 5000-11-01, 
0001-01-01.. Is there any reason to have such values or can we generate dates 
dynamically there?
