I've committed to kdelibs a patch that allows to specify whether you want to
have a declined form of month in dates. It is important for at least slavic
January = leden
10 January 2002 = 10 ledna 2002
January = styczeń
10 January 2002 = 10 stycznia 2002
The patch adds new strings to kdelibs/kdecore "of January", "of February" etc.
You may omit these new strings if your language doesn't use declined forms of
months. Two config keys govern the behaviour (NounDeclension and
DateMonthNamePossessive in entry.desktop). Only if both are set to true the
new behaviour is used.
The patch also adds a checkbox to kdebase/kcontrol/locale Date&Time module.
The checkbox controls the state of DateMonthNamePossessive key and is visible
only if you have NounDeclension = true. So for English, French and others
nothing should change. Please note that even with new behaviour chosen, the
old format is still recognized by readDate function.
Crossposting to kde-core-devel and kmail as this affects kdecore. Kmail is
affected that the date put during reply formation may change.
I have posted the patch on kde-core-devel some 4 weeks ago and have received
no critisism of it so I assumed I had a "go" :-) It's been working for me
