Image for ml_IN's AM/PM
Just found out that "00" is shown for locales where time is show in 24hr format,
12hr formats come properly.
Actually, this is not a but, but a feature which looks bad when viewing the
This is what i found in e-day-view-time-item.c:681
/* In 12-hour format we display 'am' or 'pm' instead of '00'. */
So, this "00" is the starting minutes of the event.
However, I agree with Aman that any user can confuse this 00 with a string
error. I'l trying to see whats the best solution out :)

Patch to get to the screenshot in previous comment.
So either this is not a bug or this patch can be good or we can remove the
minutes marker altogether from the display.
What do you think Matthew?
Not sure this is a bug, but we should figure this out before F7...
I'd say the minutes display could just be removed without a big loss of clarity.
But it is probably best to leave that decision to upstream.
Based on attachment 146534 [details] I would say this is notabug.
Agreed, closing as such.
