[New-bugs-announce] [issue14426] Lib/Cookie.py date format problem

New submission from Müte Invert <valtron2000 at gmail.com>:

Cookie.py doesn't format the expiry date correctly. The problematic line is: http://hg.python.org/cpython/file/2.7/Lib/Cookie.py#l393, which should read 'return "%s, %02d %3s %4d %02d:%02d:%02d GMT" % \' (spaces instead of dashes). The RFC specifying the date format is http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2616#section-3.3.1; you can see that with dashes, only a 2-digit year is allowed (date2).
