1. Short form of "piÄ…tek" is and always was "piÄ…", not "ptk" (this one is really annoying).

2. At least short forms of month and weekday names usually begin with uppercase letter,
   but it is probably a matter of preference.

3. Since the update, gnome applications (clock and evolution's calendar, all date pickers)
   show month name in genitive case where it should be in nominative
