da_GL: Greenland should default to 24-hour clock

Reported by: fredrik Owned by: fredrik
Component: main Data Locale: da_GL
Phase: dsub Review: emmons
Weeks: Data Xpath:



We have an internal report that da_GL should default to 24 hour clock, just like da.

What's interesting is that da_GL doesn't have any data except the default time format. That was added as part of bug:8329, where Europe essentially all got 24-hour clocks. Greenland was given 12-hour clock deliberately, presumably because it's not part of Europe geographically.

In that case also kl.xml (Kalaallisut) should use 24h default time formats (which it does not at the moment).

Updated be http://st.unicode.org/cldr-apps/v#/da_GL/Gregorian/1b89d7c2d516faca and http://st.unicode.org/cldr-apps/v#/kl/Gregorian/1b89d7c2d516faca but catching an error in survey tool. Unsure if any other data item needs to be changed.

Yes, the "other data item" that needs to be changed is common/supplemental/supplementalData.xml

In the <timeData> section, you currently see:

 <hours preferred="h" allowed="h H" regions="AS BT DJ ER GH GL IN LS PG PW SO TO VU WS"/>

Probably the best fix here is to just remove GL from this list, and let it default to the same as 001, which is "H" preferred ( 24 hours ) and "H" or "h" allowed ( either one ) - unless you know for a fact that it to be treated like Denmark ( i.e. 12 hour is not acceptable at all ), in which case you would add "GL" to the first line in that section, which has H preferred and only H allowed.

Took a more medium approach and added it to hours preferred="H" allowed="H h"

Replying to fredrik:

Took a more medium approach and added it to hours preferred="H" allowed="H h"

Which I now realize was stupid as that is the fallback. Will change...
