Ability to specify Date format in Repository Explorer Dialog
Created originally on Bitbucket by datallah (Daniel Atallah)
Currently when displaying the "Local Date" or "Universal Date" columns, there is no way to customize the format in which these dates are displayed.
It would be nice if there were a way to decide which in format dates should be displayed. A simple pref where a time.strftime() string could be specified would be adequate. One could also take it a step further and have selectable prefs for common values ("%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S", "%m/%d/%Y %H:%M:%S", "%d/%m/%Y %H:%M:%S") as well as allowing users to specify the mask themselves.
I could see that once this is in place, people would expect to be able to enter dates in their specified format too, but that probably warrants having a separate enhancement request.
