[New-bugs-announce] [issue17701] Improving strftime documentation

David Wolever report at bugs.python.org
Fri Apr 12 02:06:03 CEST 2013

New submission from David Wolever:

The current strftime documentation isn't very helpful. It doesn't have examples, and the ordering is unhelpful.

I've also moved some format-specific notes into the notes below the format-string-table, because the format string table is what 98%* of people care about.

TODO before this can be merged:
- Clean up note order
- Check that it works with the Python 3 docs
