Description Andrew Overholt 2007-04-13 12:05:37 EDT
Hitting reply results in the attribution string having the month and day
reversed.  Example:

Fri, 09 Mar 2007

=> "On Fri, 2007-09-03 ..."

That should read "On Fri, 2007-03-09 ..."

I'm running under en_CA.  See the screenshot.

Comment 2 Matthew Barnes 2007-04-27 14:13:09 EDT
The attribution string is localized, whereas I believe the Date field in the
original message is displayed as is.


#. Note to translators: this is the attribution string used when quoting
#. * messages. Each ${Variable} gets replaced with a value. To see a full
#. * list of available variables, see em-composer-utils.c:1514

Closing this as NOTABUG since it seems to be the intended behavior, but feel
free to reopen this if you feel there's an issue with that behavior.
Comment 4 Andrew Overholt 2007-04-27 18:10:30 EDT
That is *definitely* a bug.  Can we fix it in our packages until Adam W. (I
assume he still does the translations) gets a chance to fix upstream?  A simple
reversal of the ${Day} and ${Month} in msgstr would be perfect, I think.  Thanks.
Comment 5 Matthew Barnes 2007-04-28 00:52:58 EDT
No problem.  Fixed in evolution-2.10.1-8.fc7.

Also forwarded this upstream:
