Description Andreas Haupt 2007-07-11 08:10:52 EDT
Description of problem:

When entering a birthday for a contact in evolution you are only able to set the
last two digits of the birthday's year. For dates before 1969 this date is
automatically set to 2000 + entered year (e.g. 5/7/52 becomes 5/7/2052).

As this date is in future it won't get visible in evolution's calendar.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Expected results:

you should be able to enter the year completely - not just the last two digits

RHEL 5.2 will re-base Evolution from version 2.8.0 to version 2.12.3.
Can you please test whether this bug is still present in RHEL 5.2?
Comment 2 Andreas Haupt 2008-03-31 02:43:58 EDT
I've tested it with 2.12.3 in Fedora8 - the bug has gone there.
Comment 3 Matthew Barnes 2008-03-31 06:55:43 EDT
Okay, thanks for the update.  Closing as CURRENTRELEASE.
