[PATCH] LC_TIME for it_IT it_CH wrong
Last modified: 2010-09-25 08:05:09 UTC
Accordingly to this file  and also because I'm Italian, I've seen
an error in the way the date is displayed in linux.
The correct formati for Italian speakers is:
day_name day_number month_name year HH:MM:SS
in the LC_TIME date_fmt things are really mixed up and should be changed to:
%a %e %b %Y, %H:%M:%S, %Z

I'll answer tomorrow, since I have to look back at the patch because I forgot
Can you tell me the difference from date_fmt and d_t_fmt?
Frankly, I have not been able to figure what date_fmt is good for quickly - its
purpose seems to be the same as d_fmt, but I cannot find it being used anywhere
It's the default date(1) format.
So there's no reason for them to be different, right?

This patch contains the changelog, and drops the bits for it_CH since I'm from
Italy, not from Switzerland.

Sorry, I forgot to add a comment
different date and time formats are used depending from format :
% Appropriate date and time representation
% Appropriate date and time representation (%c) with abbreviations
% Appropriate date representation (%x)
% Appropriate time representation (%X)
Ok, so I will change date_fmt to not contain abbreviations.
What about the timezone? Should it be present for both date_fmt and d_fmt?
