French time format

Reported by: relgu@… Owned by: fredrik
Component: datetime Data Locale: fr
Phase: dsub Review:
Weeks: Data Xpath:


Time of day is formated currently in French (fr) as "13:30", yet in Canadian French as "13 h 30". In fact, the latter usage is also the standard in France French. Could you harmonize it across French locales?

Taking to investigate.

Also the question is what the format should be when including seconds?

Was mentioned in ticket:4261 . Was re-raised in ticket:8503 which is still open (and suggests no change when including seconds).

I'm interested as a (non-French) developer where this issue was brought up by our localizers, and the code was using the "short" time formats.

The usage of " h " (or even "h" without spaces) seems to be supported by some results of Google searches:

I think the fr_CA locale does use the " h " notation.

Tempting to leave this for the survey tool.
