We've just posted a long page of docs that describes how to format
dates with all of the date macros in Conversant.
(Those are "user-level" docs. The developer docs will include an
additional section on directly accessing the date formatter, as well as
how to provide your own localization sets in custom plugins, which is
incredibly easy to do.)

Let us know what you think, please, and of course we're here to help with
