The spanish months and days translations are all totally lowercase. I think they should use the same format (first character uppercase) that the english words.

Because of this is a trivial change (some characters changes in some translations), I triage the ticket to "Ready to Checkin" as Django Documentation says.

Hang on a sec, this needs review from someone familiar with Spanish conventions. Per this page:

it is NOT customary to capitalize the names of months and days in Spanish. That sounds similar to what I learned of French when I took it in high school. Also, I'd be surprised if such a basic thing has been "wrong" in the translation for so long, but since I have no formal Spanish training I'll leave this open for someone who actually knows for real. You simply say it should be like English -- but from the little research I've done Spanish here is just not like English.

Ok, that true!

After a little research I found this page from "Official Real Academy of Spanish Language" ($File/CuestionesparaelFAQdeconsultas.htm#ap32) where this case is described and say that months, days and seasons are lowercase (except when puntuations requires uppercase)

I'm spanish and the reason for this ticket was that here in Spain this language rule is not use for everyone. The people use lower and upper in this cases without following any rule.

Excuse me for this confusion. I turn the ticket to "invalid".

The right thing to do here would be to ensure that the "|capfirs"t filter is used when month names appear at the beggining of sentences, etc. So all those Latin languages could benefit from proper casing.

That's not only with months but also other things like weekdays, even places as not *all* place names are uppercased (at least in Spanish). Only Countries.

But that's a story for another ticket ;)
