Description (last modified by roozbeh) (diff)

According to our Italian lead linguist, while "di mattina", "mezzogiorno", "del pomeriggio", "di sera", "mezzanotte", and "di notte" are not incorrect, they should not be used for time stamps. If the user wants a 12-hour format, AM and PM should be used instead.

The four countries we have an Italian locale for, Italy (IT), Switzerland (CH), San Marino (SM), and Vatican (VA) have:

<hours preferred="H" allowed="H hB" regions="... IT ... SM ..."/>
<hours preferred="H" allowed="H hB h" regions="... CH ... VA ..."/>

The first says Italy and San Marino should never user AM and PM, and the second says Switzerland and Vatican City prefer flexible times of day to AM and PM. Both of those appear incorrect.

To be conservative, since both Italy and Switzerland have non-Italian locales, I suggest we only change it_IT and it_CH. But we can change San Marino and Vatican City, since they only have Italian.

Here is my suggested change:

<hours preferred="H" allowed="H hB" regions="... IT ..."/>
<hours preferred="H" allowed="H hB h" regions="... CH ......"/>
<hours preferred="H" allowed="H h hB" regions="... it_CH it_IT ... SM ... VA ... "/>

Seems reasonable to me. Suggest this go to roozbeh for 35 as medium priority
