  • Triage Stage changed from Ready for checkin to Design decision needed

Before checking in a doc change that claims something works, we should first verify it works. Adding a testcase that attempts to use this formatting option would seem to be wise. Actually, based on #10318 and the associated django-users thread:, it appears the doc is more right than wrong here -- I can't see how the existing code is correct.

I don't know whether the right answer is to to fix the code to match the doc (raise NotImplemented there, as it used to before r992) or fix the implementation.

Note #10318 has a test, but that test fails on Windows due to strftime('%s') there returning an empty string rather then a number, so that test can't be directly used in our test suite.

  • milestone set to 1.1

Seems like this should be in 1.1 like #10825. Feel free to revert if not.

  • milestone 1.1 deleted

This isn't 1.1 material. Karen's comment indicates why: it's not a public feature at the moment and needs a bunch of work to fix things.

Patch over at #10825 that incorporates changes for this ticket as well, since they go hand-in-hand.
