Long time ago....    ;-)
I rolled my own additional calenday package and use it since years:
http://www.csv.ica.uni-stuttgart.de/homes/ph/adapilotresources/basic_tools/calenday.ads
The current discussion triggered my mind to go to brush up my
calendar/date/time-related tools with new useful ideas.
GNAT.calendar is of course a fine starting point for everyone
but I generally prefer using fully portable independent software.
In order to make my private stuff possibly eligible for public use
(e.g. potential contribution for GNAT), I ask you all to
send me recommendations, ideas, and even suggestions
for change of spec, etc., related to date and time calculations
and their string representations.
keywords:
locale adjustment, pattern, genericity, flexibility, usefulness,
open software.

gathering ideas...
