Jiří Čepák from complained about change of format in plaintext mail reports, as he would prefer ISO 8601 (however I believe he means RFC 3339 in fact).

We are trying to wedge as much info into as little width as possible already, so lengthening is probably a no-go.

However, we could allow more possibilities in web report versions (list is not definitive and free for discussion):

  • popup bubble with alternate timestamp formats for cut’n’pasting
  • possibility to change datetime format to ISO (besides localised versions) as user preference
  • possibility to change datetime format in top right “world” menu

For start let’s change web timestamp format to respect locale setting, and add popup bubble with two versions of ISO 3339 format - one in local timezone, one in Zulu.
