#6786 closed defect (fixed)

usage of strftime() causes a "Genshi UnicodeDecodeError"

Reported by: Jens Langner Owned by: Ryan J Ollos

Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


Similar to ticket #4820 this plugins suffers from incorrectly using strftime() which in turn causes a "Genshi UnicodeDecodeError" to appear when a ticket is changed and the Locale is not english.

The following patch fixes the issues:
