Description Peter Wullinger 2004-09-25 19:00:35 UTC
This is the same update as PR/72076
(http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=72076), but
for the utf8locale port.

DIN 5008 (German norm for text processing) defines the old date
format (%d.%m.%Y) to be obsolete and to be used only, if unambigous.
In international communications the new format (%Y-%m-%d) is now
required and FreeBSD should respect this.

- DIN 5008
- EN 28 601
- ISO 8601

Thanks to Oliver Lietz for bringing this to my attention.

Fix: Apply the following patch to utf8locale-1.5:
% export LC_ALL=de_DE.UTF-8
% date +%x
