Description David Benbennick 2006-02-04 23:15:16 UTC
At [[Image:Buddhist Monk.JPG#Metadata]], the "Date and time of data generation"
field will always be the current time.  The actual date in the EXIF is
2005:03:03 14:07:34.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2006-02-05 00:53:38 UTC
Actually, the field seems to be bogus, at least as read from exif_read_data():

  string(19) "    :  :     :  :  "
Comment 2 David Benbennick 2006-02-05 00:58:46 UTC
Yes, that's true.  Presumably MediaWiki should handle that error a little
better---if it fails to parse a date from the value, it should detect that fact,
instead of defaulting to "now".  Perhaps a good default action is to display the
value literally (in this case, " : : : : ").
