  • Milestone changed from CPS 3.4.0 to CPS 3.4.1

if the local settled in cps doesn't exist (with exactly) the same name on the system, it fails.

solution: use our own date translations :'(

  • Summary changed from local problem on mail date display to locale problem on mail date display

You mean "locale", not "local".

Using the system for this is a bad idea. On unix, the locale is process-global, so switching it during runtime is not an option.

Zope 3 has the necessary framework to do date translations.
