Inconsistent spacing in en_GB

Description (last modified by mark) (diff)

  1. We made the spacing uniform around – in en (and I thought, most other locales), because it looks funny when forms switch back and forth.

However, we see the following in en_GB, where a row of successive intervals will sometimes have spacing around – and sometimes not. We should fix that, and we should review other cases.

<intervalFormatItem id="MMMd">
	<greatestDifference id="d">d–d MMM</greatestDifference>
	<greatestDifference id="M">d MMM – d MMM</greatestDifference>

Here's a sample of the problem:

12–25 Oct.
27 Oct. – 3 Nov.
15–18 Nov.

  1. We should review other locales for the same problem.
  1. This is another case where it looks like we have many gratuitous changes in a country locale; we need to have a better way of bringing those to translators (and our) attention!

Looked at this a bit.

Filed ticket:6900

Also need to look at how extensive this problem is, probably by comparing field values with parent values that are the same except for spacing and minus vs hyphen differences.

Will take too much work for this release; postponing.

Peter, transferring to you in case you want it. Otherwise, give it back to me for v27.

For now I will take for 26dvet

OK, back to you. Note: I believe Chicago Manual actually specifies that intervals should be this way.

I think you probably ended up doing this one as a part of the regional work.
