Triage Stage: Ready for checkinAccepted

I'm going to move this away from "ready to checkin" until at least one other French speaker has had a look at the impact here. The fact that this hasn't been raised before makes me think there might be something else going on here (it might just be an oversight, but it might be working around some other limitations in the way those strings are used).

I'll also ask for opinions on django-i18n.

Actually, the patch fixes 2 different problems:

  • it lower cases month and weekday names. It's just the way it's supposed to be in French (and, I suspect, in other latin languages: check #7461 for the same fixes in Spanish). That fact that it's just typography (and thus, quite minor) is probably the reason why it wasn't reported before (actually, that was bugging me for months, and I'm just reporting this because 1.0 is coming).
  • an important string is changed (first in patch). That one is very serious as it's in the <title> for the first page in admin, and it's totally nonsense. That's quite incredible it wasn't reported until then. I'd love to hear from French fellows about this one.
