We should have AM/PM localizable in order to localize time-picking reels.
Still affects 1.3. Please aware the order of AM/PM and time as well.

Kaze, any news on this? Do you think we should take a different approach?

Thanks for the heads-up Delphine. :-)

It took me a while (we’re urged to ignore all non-blocking bugs these days), but yes, I’m OK with this approach.

Please open a follow-up to fix the homescreen clock as well. It should be similar (though simpler) to bug 932356: I think we should rely on the position of `%p' in the `shortTimeFormat' entity to properly order the time and am/pm strings.

Another nice follow-up could be to check all shortTimeFormat-like entities in Gaia. I think we have a lot of duplicates which are not always consistent — especially for zh-TW, where there are both `%I:%M %p' and `%p %I:%M' — and I think we should always reuse the default string (defined in shared/locales/date) to ensure consistency.

Thanks kaze, I'll take a look later today at both (home page clock and consistency).

Setting checkin-needed to get this landed.
