Description of problem:
Currently, at the default zoom level, the Gantt and Resource Usage views display Week Number and Date in the graph header (for instance, Week 51 2009, Day 14.)
If one zooms in, one can see the actual day/date (Mon, Dec 14.) However, the need to zoom in and out all of the time makes the tool very "clunky" to use. A solution might be to see the full date "pop-up" in a tooltip-style box if the mouse cursor hovers over it whilst at the default zoom level.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Functionality does not yet exist.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to the Gantt or Resource Usage Views.
2. At the default zoom level, the headers indicate the day in the format of Week n, Day nn. This does not readily indicate the month or day of the week.
3. The user can see these by using the zoom in and out functionality but perhaps a hovering pop-up box would be better, provided it is in accordance with the GNOME HIG.
Can only tell day of week and month by zooming in.
Hover over day field with mouse cursor and seeing full date in set GNOME locale format would be more human-readable.
At the moment if you hover over the headers in Gantt view the status bar shows the date e.g. 12 Dec 2009, but the same doesn't happen in Resource Usage view.
How about we extend that to include the Day as well as the date, and to do it in the resource usage as well
Fix submitted upstream to show this data consistently in the status bar and checked in locally
