Yes, that format is required by RFC 2518, which is why issue #614 is slated
for alpha. I find it to be a pretty egregious violation of the RFC.

*However* ... that wire-format does not necessarily imply that the repos
format must match. Having them the same would make it easier to just drop
the repos value onto the wire, yes, but not *required*.

If we happen to choose a different format for the repos, then we can just do
the necessary translations.

All that said, I'm just clarifying what is required or not. Personally, I
think the repos format *should* be ISO 8601, and while we're at it, then the
particular variant we choose should match RFC 2518.

Cheers,
