Bug#459690: gnome-panel: clock applet: Please expose or document the option to use a custom date format.

Package: gnome-panel
Version: 2.20.2-2
Severity: wishlist

The clock applet has an option to display the date in a custom format. This
option is, however, not visible to the user. It can be exposed by setting
the /apps/panel/applets/clock/prefs/format gconf key to 'custom', but
neither this procedure nor the existence of this option is documented.

As an option to display the date in a custom format is useful, please expose
or document it.
