[Python-apps-team] Bug#485890: Wish for timezone support for hg ci -d date

Package: mercurial
Version: 1.0.1-1
Severity: wishlist

When attempting to manually create backdated patches (in order to
migrate a Darcs2 repo to hg), I find that the date format emitted by
"darcs changes" was not supported, e.g.

    $ hg ci -d 'Sat Apr 26 16:33:35 EST 2008'
    abort: invalid date: 'Sat Apr 26 16:33:35 EST 2008'

This also appears to be the format emitted by "date" when called
without arguments in my current locale (LANG=en_AU.utf8).
