This fails in getting the month string.
(parse-time-string "August 5, 2002.")

Kevin Rodgers also reported in gnu.emacs.help yesterday that it fails in getting full weekday names, and he provide a fix for that. (his message and code pasted below my sig)

(parse-time-string "Monday, Nov. 28, 1994")
=> (nil nil nil 28 11 1994 nil nil nil)
Odd that the leading "Monday, " yields nil DOW...  It turns out that is
due to the fact that the parse-time-weekdays variable only has
abbreviations (e.g. "mon"), just like parse-time-months.  Easy to fix:
(let ((parse-time-weekdays (append parse-time-weekdays
                                   '(("sunday" . 0)
                                     ("monday" . 1)
                                     ("tuesday" . 2)
                                     ("wednesday" . 3)
                                     ("thursday" . 4)
                                     ("friday" . 5)
                                     ("saturday" . 6)))))
   (parse-time-string "Monday, Nov. 28, 1994"))
=> (nil nil nil 28 11 1994 1 nil nil)
