Re: Bug#115833: [PATCH] date: document that %k and %l are space padded

Hi Benoît,

I forgot to mention that I'll wait until you ACK before pushing this
upstream, with you as the author.  Once pushed, we can't edit anything,
so I want to be sure you agree with the changes.  I.e., make sure that
I haven't introduced a typo, and verify that your name/email are what
you'd prefer to use.
