i18n French Date Short Format in Gregorian Calendar

Description

Deleted Component: other

Hi there,

I'm a French PHP developer using Yii Framework, wich is using your great work.

In France, we like to use dates as 'dd/MM/y' (4 digits for the year) format. Whereas in the repository, the 'short' format is only 'dd/MM/yy' (2 digits for the year), which is not the most common.

(ref : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Date_format_by_country)

I suggest replacing line 1603 with :
http://www.unicode.org/cldr/trac/browser/trunk/common/main/fr.xml?rev=6360#L1603

There may be the same issue in other languages (it has been pointed also in Italian).

Here is the ticket in Yii : https://github.com/yiisoft/yii/issues/1436

Thanks

Replying to (Comment 3 clement.fleury@…):

Oops, I meant now would be year '02012' (no, I don't come from the future unfortunately).

 

BTW, is there anybody at CLDR looking at this issue?

No no, I mistyped: I meant 'yyyy', as for 2012!

Yeah, got that.

So we agree : we need 4 digits years on the short format.

Hey CLDR guys, are you reading this?
Could you please give us an answer whether you're going to solve this issue or not?
And if not, why?

Thanks for replying.

This is fixed for CLDR 23. Note that a single 'y' will still parse a 4-digit year (or a 3-digit or 5-digit year...), in addition to formatting using as many digits as necessary with zero-padding. So that is what it got changed to. There is almost never a reason to have yyyy in the formats.

So why do I find 247 hits of short or medium dates ending with `/yyyy` on the 231 locale files?
