Hi, I'm working on python code to parse/generate a dep3 conforming patch header. Dep3 specifies the last-update field to not contain the time: "This field can be used to record the date when the meta-information was last updated. It should use the ISO date format YYYY-MM-DD." I assume "ISO date format" refers to ISO 8601. Is there any particular reasond why the field should not include the time of the last update? I think all relevant programming languages can parse and produce Datetime strings like "2007-06-20T12:34:40+03:00". It would avoid a few lines of code and a bit of inaccuracy if we could agree that the last-update field may also include seconds resolution.  http://dep.debian.net/deps/dep3/  https://github.com/thkoch2001/python- debian/blob/thkoch/dep3_patch/lib/debian/dep3_patch.py  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8601 P.s. I'm a Python newby and appreciate any code review! Best regards, Thomas Koch, http://www.koch.ro
