Subject Re: Atomic Update w/ Date Copy Field
Date Tue, 30 Aug 2016 16:55:10 GMT
I noticed (and abused) the issue Todd described in my Solr puzzle at:

The second format ("EEE...") looks rather strange. I would suspect
that the conversion Date->String code is using the active locale and
that is the format default for that locale. So, the bug might be that
the locale needs to be more specific to preserve the consistence.
