Comment 2 Mayank Jain 2007-01-25 11:05:33 UTC
Just found out that "00" is shown for locales where time is show in 24hr format,
12hr formats come properly.

Comment 3 Mayank Jain 2007-01-25 11:43:06 UTC
Actually, this is not a but, but a feature which looks bad when viewing the

This is what i found in e-day-view-time-item.c:681
/* In 12-hour format we display 'am' or 'pm' instead of '00'. */

So, this "00" is the starting minutes of the event.
However, I agree with Aman that any user can confuse this 00 with a string
error. I'l trying to see whats the best solution out :)

Comment 6 Mayank Jain 2007-01-25 12:49:57 UTC
So either this is not a bug or this patch can be good or we can remove the
minutes marker altogether from the display.

What do you think Matthew?

Comment 7 Christopher Aillon 2007-04-17 19:38:30 UTC
Not sure this is a bug, but we should figure this out before F7...

Comment 8 Matthias Clasen 2007-05-14 17:56:51 UTC
I'd say the minutes display could just be removed without a big loss of clarity.
But it is probably best to leave that decision to upstream.

Comment 9 Jens Petersen 2007-09-04 02:59:20 UTC
Based on attachment 146534 [details] I would say this is notabug.

Comment 10 Matthew Barnes 2007-09-13 17:21:05 UTC
Agreed, closing as such.
