The user language is a parameter from the client, and is dictated by the
client.lang parameter at "gnuhealth-client.conf".
It seems like the user language overrides the client configuration
parameter "client.lang" (and all the locale representation associated
It used to be the case where the date representation was dictated by
the local user locale (mandated by locale -a). This provides maximum
flexibility. On the other hand, most people will have no problem by
using the default locale from the language they choose at Tryton / GH
I actually like the latter option, but I agree we could study having a
way to override it at client level, and use the user's locale
independently of the login language.
Something to think / discuss about.
