Actually, it might be possible with |a bit of effort to get similar patches into groff and Heirloom, |Werner and Carsten are usually very helpful - but i'm not convinced |the format you propose makes much sense. We really don't need |seconds and timezones in .Dd, and i wouldn't know how to explain |the need to Werner and Carsten. Rather than trying to change the |world, i think it makes more sense to teach SVN to generate .Dd but i think ISO 8601 / RFC 3339 "full-date" would be a useful extension since they are (a) standardized and well-known and (b) locale / charset agnostic and worldwide relatively (it is a Gregorian date in the end) easy perceivable. I lack the overview, but localized manpages have to ship with those english / american dates, too? So no, now that groff's mdoc has been extended to support mdocml's cvs(1) tag natively i think i'll add ISO 8601 YYYY-MM-DD to my mdoc copy once i come to development of my roff fork, and add a Savannah bug report with the patch, then. --steffen -- To unsubscribe send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
