Yes, the code needs ' since it's passed to QDateTime::toString.

The quotes are not shown to the user, they are used to mark a section as "this is text, just pass it though, don't try to do MMM or yyyy substitution here".

Given that the translation comment is already already very long, what would you suggest?
