Why do you think the day names and month names in Afar should start with
uppercase? In some languages, like German, this is the case. In other
languages, like Finnish, the month and day names usually start with
lower case unless they happen to appear at the start of a sentence.

So why do you think it is upper case in Afar?

So you are fixing "nah" to "Kud" in your patch to make it agree
with the full month names, apparently:

    % Abbreviated month names (%b)
    abmon    "qun";/
    % Full month names (%B)
    mon      "Qunxa Garablu";/
             "Ciggilta Kudo";/
             "Agda Baxisso";/
             "Caxah Alsa";/
             "Qasa Dirri";/
             "Qado Dirri";/
             "Kaxxa Garablu"

But why should we assume that the full month names are correct?

Do you have any references?
