Description

English is bigger than the United States. It is the lingua franca of the internets. Date format should be ISO format,
%Y-%m-%%d, not the silly middle-endian 02/03/04.

Oh, and a bug tracking system REALLY should have the ability to add bugs and feature requests without creating an account.
You are missing a lot of collaboration because of this.

Sorry if I sound a bit cranky, but I wanted to add this entry hours ago, but had to wait for the confirmation mail.
Normally I wouldn't bother, but redmine is so nice. Now I just have to find a way to send you a patch with a new translation,
since I can't find any email address... anywhere.

I'm not sure everyone agrees with that. But as you see, it can
be changed easily in lang files.

but redmine is so nice

Thanks :-)

Now I just have to find a way to send you a patch with a

Yes, it was from me. But since I failed to note that there
were a few more files with translation info it's not
complete. I should have it done by the end of the weekend at
the latest.

Wrt the date format: yes, I recognize not everyone agrees
(there's this huge country/market called the USA that uses
that format for example). What I seem to have forgotten to
mention is that I'd like a language called "English with
ISO
dates" or similar.

Updated by Jean-Philippe Lang over 16 years ago

Added an option in rev 585, to choose the date format: language
based, as defined in each lang file (default) or ISO 8601. This
option can be set in Admin -> Settings.
