maybe Issuezilla should offer numeric-format (and date-format) as a
standard attribute to issues (like OS and platform). As with the start
of the repository mantenance tool internationalisation issues are often
more complex than expected. I guess that might be a valuable information
for the developer the issue gets assigned to.
(As some issues might only be reproducable with European settings)
And on the other hand, a user covering the problem might not be able to
decide if it might be an internationalisation issue and will not enter
this useful information.

great thoughts - we just cannot change issuezilla unfortunately. The best we
can hope for at the moment is that people remember to add their session info
to the bug and highlight their date and number formats. If nothing is
available, we will likely assume American !
We do however have a lot of code in the framework to try and resolve these
types of issues, so hopefully there should not be too much more of them
around - but they can be nasty ones to find when they appear.
