Hmm, indeed. Those other formats were specifically disabled in r13039, which added some doc about how those formats can't be used for localized dates, but we seem to have overlooked the fact they they were included in the defaults pre-localization-support. The settings doc also has it wrong right now.

  • Easy pickings unset
  • UI/UX unset, I believe, is a more accurate description than what I said above of the current situation. What both the datefield doc and the settings doc fail to mention is that what they are showing is the default for the USE_L10N=False case. Datefield doc perhaps should be nothing that the defaults (for the USE_L10N=False case) are the DATE_INPUT_FORMATS setting. In the USE_L10N=True case it's not feasible to try to state the defaults, because it varies by locale.

Also, #17532 reported this again.

[17554] clarified the documentation, which is the fix for this.
