The Italian translation uses capitalized words for names of languages, months and weekdays. The standard is for all these names to be lower case.

Check other systems for comparison (e.g. /usr/lib/locale on Unix).

Thanks for the patch, steadicat. It is slightly broken and incomplete, though: it changes all accents on "i" and "u" from grave to acute (no such things in italian), and does not consider djangojs.po .

I adapted it, and am going to commit now.

You'll find from several sources (e.g. the Palazzi dictionary, the Wikipedia style guide for Italian or this thorough article) that í and ú not only exist in Italian, but are the preferred version given they more closely represent the phonetic pronounciations. They are falling out of common use only because of a mistake in the design of the original Italian keyboard.

You're right though, this doesn't belong in this patch.
