Bug Description

There used to be a workaround by modifying /etc/default/locale, but that doesn't work any more.

Lot's of people prefer to have American English Locale, but Monday as the first day of week (google "gnome first day of week" for proof).

Such a setting exists in Windows, Mac OS X, KDE, XFCE, Evolution, Lightning and all other calendar applications I've used.

Hope for understanding from Ubuntu Devs.

The international standard (ISO) also says that Monday is the first day:

This bug hasn't been touched for a year. I really hope you will look into this before 12.10!
