Just found out that "00" is shown for locales where time is show in 24hr format,
12hr formats come properly.
Comment 3 Mayank Jain 2007-01-25 06:43:06 EST
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 :)

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?
Comment 7 Christopher Aillon 2007-04-17 15:38:30 EDT
Not sure this is a bug, but we should figure this out before F7...
Comment 8 Matthias Clasen 2007-05-14 13:56:51 EDT
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.
Comment 9 Jens Petersen 2007-09-03 22:59:20 EDT
Based on attachment 146534 [details] I would say this is notabug.
Comment 10 Matthew Barnes 2007-09-13 13:21:05 EDT
Agreed, closing as such.
