I have a suggestion for the "strftime() and strptime() behaviour
section in the documentation:
I believe it would be informative to *provide a remark that the default
Python locale is /by default/ not the default OS locale*, with a link to
e.g. the setlocale()
where it is explained how to use the default OS locale.
I find this non-obvious, since descriptions such as "Locale's
appropriate date representation" (for the %x directive) would make me
assume that, without any action from my part, the locale's appropriate
date representation is the one from the OS.
This made me submit this stackoverflow question:
