[New-bugs-announce] [issue22494] default logging time string is not localized

New submission from Sean Dague:

The default time string is not localized for using locale specific formatting, but is instead hardcoded to a ','. 

https://hg.python.org/cpython/file/c87e00a6258d/Lib/logging/__init__.py#l483 demonstrates this.

Instead I think we should set that to the value of: locale.localeconv()['decimal_point']

While this clearly a very minor issue, I stare at enough logging output data that falls back to default formats (due to testing environments) that would love for this to be locale aware.
