I support a change of settings, because agree dates are really ambiguous and difficult to decrypt ATM.

kunda, dd-mm-yyyy is afaik not a usual date format.

the ones normally in use (and broadly understood) are:

- yyyy-mm-dd for the ISO date format
- for the european one
- mm/dd/yyyy for the US american one

the separator does matter :-)

there are further variant but they exist only for making people mad.

the american one is probably not a good one in an international project.

1/ is probably the one to be chosen. 2/ is imho ok (and better readable for people not into programming)
