gdm ja date format is ugly
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:46:09 EDT
Description of Problem:
The format of the ja date string translation should be changed
so that the date is ordered in a intelligible way.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gdm in ja locale
The same date string "%a %b %d, %I:%M %p" as for English is used.
"%x(%a) %p%l:%M" say would be better.
I don't know about zh and ko.
If %x is specified, no need to contains '(%a)'. %x means *without time* you
know. it includes a weekday name.
Ok, my string is based on date(1). glibc does something different?
Look at the source. and man 3 strfime.
Hmm, if we respect meaning of %b, '%m/%d(%a) %p %I:%M' is better, I think.
because %x contains a year. also it definitely abbreviates a month and a day for
Hmm, I've made a lot of typo... I mean 'it doesn't definitely abbreviates a

could you use an attached ja.po?
We will try. there's only a few hours left though really.
Putting in -10
Afraid with gdm-18.104.22.168-10, I still see "%a %b %d, %I:%M %p" output
not "%m/%d (%a) %p %I:%M" in a Japanese locale.
Havoc, you had to copy gdm-ja.po as ja.po on %%setup :(
I did in 22.214.171.124-12.
Thanks tagoh, sorry about that.
So, looks like this is taken care of. Closing out. Please reopen if the date
string is still formatted incorrectly.
Yep, looks good to me in gdm-126.96.36.199-13.
