Errata date inconsistent

Description of problem:
On satellite 4.0.1 (installed with en_GB.UTF-8) the date of an errata is reported in DD/MM/YY format. However on RHN hosted 4.0.1 the date of an errata is reported in MM/DD/YY format.
Check RHSA-2005:420 for an example, the issue date is:
6/8/05 on the satellite
8/6/05 on hosted
I suggest that we use a non-ambiguous date format in order to prevent confusion among clients - MM/DD/YY is only used in the US to my knowledge.
Perhaps DD-MMM-YY (e.g. 27-Sep-05) would be better?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHN satellite (not sure if locale has an impact on this)
2. Search for an errata
3. Compare errata issue dates
Actual Results: Issue date on satellite appeared different from that on RHN hosted due to using different date format.
Expected Results: Date format should be consistent and non-ambiguous.
This bug is filed against RHN/Satellite Server but it blocks bug 218517 --
rhn510h-triage. I assume this is not correct and it should be moved to
rhn510s-triage or converted to use the sat-5.1.0 flag.
