[upstream] Would be nice if OOo honored KDE Date Format

Bug Description

Binary package hint: openoffice.org

DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu is a lie from `cat /etc/lsb-release`, it's Kubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=7.10
DISTRIB_CODENAME=gutsy
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 7.10"
on AMD64, using OO Writer Fax Template wizard, the created template
uses the default locale date format YY/MM/DD rather than the KDE-wide
system date format of YYYY-MM-DD. I can find NO date format options
anywhere in OO Writer.

What does the output of 'locale' show?

Changing the locale for the user/system is the proper way to change that for applications in general, it seems KDE decided to NIH that feature. At most this is a wishlist bug, unless I am misunderstanding something about this bug.

Thanks,

See this upstream KDE bug that should take care of this issue:
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=197727

Well, it will take care of most of this issue, but not all. See this:
