Hi Walter!

I am currently looking into a way for you to add a new entry yourself in 
the list of selectable date formats.

I was trying to get it ready before we went into feature freeze but was 
unfortunately unable to so if I want to get this in (once I am satisfied 
with the results) I will have to ask for a derogation.

(Don't worry, I haven't forgotten you... I had some problems with my 
combination backend/frontend and had to do a complete reinstall so I had 
no way for a while to test anything very exhaustively...)

But there is actually a way for you to add a new date format... It won't 
be accessible from the drop down but any new install (or an install for 
which you force a reselection of country (I believe the switch which 
will cause this is -p )) will have it.

You need to create a locale file:


The date settings you put in there are not actually checked against the 
list of date formats so you can add one which is not currently available.

I will however work on giving you a way to add it in the date drop-downs 
this week-end and will try to get the OK to commit it but in the 
meantime you should be able to, at least temporarily, have a work-around.

If you need any help with the locale files, let me know (you can contact 
me directly for this if you wish).

Have a nice day!
