I'm currently working on adding dnd to the GtkCalendar widget (see
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=117297). I've looked around
for prior art, but couldn't find any, therefore I invented the following
data: 1-based day number (ie between 1 and 31)
data: 0-based month number (ie between 0 and 11)
The seemingly strange mixture of 1-based and 0-based numbering has been
inherited from GtkCalendar which has inerited it from time_t. The format
is 16 to give enough room for the year.
What I'd like to ask this list is:
1) Are there existing data formats for transferring dates via X
properties ? If yes, should we agree on an existing one, rather than
inventing a new one...
2) Is the proposed format good enough, or should we optionally include
time information ?
PS There seems to be some mailing list configuration issue, as I
currently can't reach this list as xdg-list at freedesktop.org, only as
xdg-list at redhat.com.
