I was referring to the paragraph about date formats in the minutes ... which is about the date format used on the web site. Within Mozilla, I would still like a preference to override the format since sometimes one is forced to use an OS which does not use the ISO format, but still wants the ISO format. There is a way to do this via environment variables (at least under linux), but most users will not know it nor will they know how to use it. PS: as far as I know, both yyyymmdd and yyyy-mm-dd are valid - with the latter far more readable and preferable.
