[docs] [issue25048] %e Directive Missing in Datetime Documentation

Marc Bouvier report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Marc Bouvier:

The %e directive is missing in the Datetime documentation. I have tried this directive in 2.6.6, 2.7.2, and 2.7.10 using datetime.datetime.strftime(datetime.datetime.now(), '%A, %B %e, %Y') and it works in all cases.

The below documentation line is pulled from, http://linux.die.net/man/3/strftime. The behavior is the same.


Like %d, the day of the month as a decimal number, but a leading zero is replaced by a space. (SU)
