@gueorgui I learnt this the other day working on a Hugo site and I immediately hated it. Every time I want to work with dates I have to fish this American date and format out of my head? 😬

@amdt @gueorgui But with the time right in the middle between day and year – it seems they managed to do the impossible: it’s even worse than all the formats that went before.
