The behaviour changed, now (1.1.0) when I connect the first time to the
dashboard I'm asked to select the timezone and the country settings.

I'd like to change the default selection when the dialog opens (GMT + english)
to the values from the current OS, in my case "CET" + "Germany".

How to repeat:
N/A this is a feature request

Suggested fix:
If possible not only detect the lack of a TZ setting for a user but pre-select the best choice so they don't have to hunt for it.

Currently defaulting to timezone of box merlin installed on. No current plans to try to detect from browser. Possible but requires some javascript hackery.
