You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
This is similar to bug #303 for the time format.
It should be possible to change the date format to yyyy/mm/dd (for example),
possibly overiding the region-locale
Specifically, I use UK settings, and thhe date format is locked to dd/mm/yy...
Enhancement, will be forwarded to upstream maintainer ASAP.
Feature request has been forwarded to upstream maintainer.
The resolution of this bug is the same than

Andre - you also knocked the priority down from Medium to Low when changing the
status... I disagree that this is now a low priority
fix/bug/enhancement/whatever - at the very least it's a Medium priority and
could/should probably be High. Then again we have a target milestone set, so
priority may not be particularly relevant in this case...
Yeah, priority in this Bugzilla is only really relevant for Website bugs, I
have to admit. It won't change a lot. :-)
Fixed in Fremantle
Setting Target Milestone to Fremantle SDK beta.
Not fixed in Fremantle according to bug 6363 comment 8.
Can the milestone of this bug be updated to an appropriate target? Hopefully
not Harmattan, but I suspect it will be.
Really not sure how this bug came to be marked as fixed judging by what has
shipped in Fremantle.
Settings -> Date and time
"24-hr clock" can be selected or not.
Back to FIXED. Next time please give at least 24h of doubt before reopening a
bug unless it's you who can certify the bug exists, :)
Ah wait, I see that this is not the AM/PM bug but the time format mm/yy.
Hmh, so what's the status on this one? Basically the “Date format” settings
changes the LC_TIME environment variable and it looks that it could be selected
independently from “Device Language” or “Regional settings” (but it can't at
The latest firmware update didn't fix this. Still happens with language
settings: English (UK) and Regional settings Finnish.

Of course it did not, as this bug report is in open state (not: fixed)...
If this is done by setting LC_TIME, then this depends on bug 7591 in
The Maemo 5 User Interface and Maemo 5 platform components (e.g. libraries)
used for the N900 are considered stable by Nokia and it seems that there are no
plans for official updates currently, hence nobody plans to work on this
(And in case you feel like discussing this situation: Nokia Customer Care or
http://talk.maemo.org would be the place to do so as you will not reach Nokia
officials in this community bugtracker - though all of this is really no news.)
Reflecting this status by setting RESOLVED WONTFIX for this
enhancement/wishlist request (see
https://bugs.maemo.org/page.cgi?id=fields.html#status for status explanations).
There is a small chance for issues in those Maemo components that are open
source: Contributed patches could be included and made available in the Maemo 5
Community CSSU updates.
The Maemo CSSU project is run by a small team of volunteers; see
http://wiki.maemo.org/CSSU for more information.
So in case that you can provide a patch that fixes the reported problem, please
