I think feature requests for T-bird should be filed upstream. reportbug
is (mostly) for reporting problems in the Debian Bugtracking System
(BTS), specific to the debian package.


I may try filing upstream, but reportbug is such a good bug-tracker compared with most other bug tracking systems. KDE's bug tracker seems to hide too much information by default.

Thanks also to the person who emailed me and suggested:


to set the date format that you want, you need to use the en-DK locale
to define your LC_TIME environment variable.

The following links were informative for me.


I ended up putting a script in /usr/local/bin for thunderbird with:

# ISO 8601 Date extension to Mozilla Thunderbird
#  must have the locale generated via
#   dpkg-reconfigure locales
export LC_TIME=en_DK.utf8

If you are missing the locale, you'll need to generate using:

dpkg-reconfigure locales

as root.

Don't forget a couple of other "obvious" things:

chmod +x /usr/local/bin/thunderbird

If running KDE, edit the K menu entry for Thunderbird to use the path /usr/local/bin/thunderbird
