Description Nick Strugnell 2008-09-05 09:20:37 EDT
Description of problem:
The server list CSV export, e.g. at https://<satellite>/rhn/CSVDownloadAction.do?__CSV__exportColumnsParam=exportColumns_1680466951&___CSV_pageListData=pageList_1680466951&__CSV_uniqueName=1680466951

has two problems.

1. The 'Date' field ignores browser locale settings and always exports with MM/DD/YYY date order, which is not used outside of North America and can lead to confusion.

2. Again, the 'Date' field uses the 12-hour clock, which is inappropriate for technical use.

3. The 'Base Channel' is not exported in the CSV, even though it is shown on the Systems screen.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHN satellite 5.1.1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Navigate to the 'Systems' screen
2. Click on the 'Download CSV' link at the bottom of the list of systems
Actual results:
As in Description

Expected results:

We have not addressed this specific bug for over 4 years. This bug was reported as either Satellite 5.0 or 5.1, both of which have now End of Life and not supported. I am closing out as wontfix to clear from backlog. 

Please re-open if you disagree and wish further review.
