That is definef by your locale.  Run "locale" to see the settings for
the current locale.  You may run for example

  LC_ALL=C gpg .....

to use another locale for gpg.

The function used to print the date is called asctimestamp and makes use
of strftime where its format string is either the one returned
nl_langinfo or lacking that fucntion the standard "%c %Z".



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
