[New-bugs-announce] [issue15080] Cookie library doesn't parse date properly

New submission from Jeremy Gillick <j_gillick at yahoo.com>:

The cookie library doesn't seem to support the standard date format (RFC 822) for the expire property while parsing a cookie. 

For example, in the Python prompt:

    >>> import Cookie
    >>> cookie = Cookie.SimpleCookie('bcookie="123"; Expires=Sat, 14-Jun-2014 23:03:13 GMT;')
    >>> cookie['bcookie']['expires']

That is a standard header, but it only processes the date up to the first space.
