[PROPOSAL] Temporary date format for humans

From: Nuutti Kotivuori <naked_at_iki.fi>
Date: 2002-06-23 10:20:27 CEST

Since getting a consensus on anything concerning dates is
like.. difficult, I'll try to get a consensus on a temporary
timeformat. This timeformat would just stay until someone can think of
something better.

So, here goes:

  Sun, 23 Jun 2002 11:13:02 +0300

Now, as I'm a sucker for standards, this is RFC2822 compliant. It
would be RFC822 compiliant as well, except that it has a four number
year. It has all the necessary information and the timezone is
expressed with a number (and with +0000 specifying GMT, instead of
'Z'), which is goodness. This will be fixed length as well, if we
zero-pad the day number. And is APR would be nice, we could already
generate these with it. I'd very much like to go for something
ISO-8601 derived in the end, but I'm quite OK with this format until
a consensus has been reached.

I will be committing this very soon if I don't get any vetos on this.

And please, do note, this is only for human display in our commandline
client, it has nothing to do with the repository timestamps.
