            Bug ID: 3777
           Summary: Weird news dates for some RSS feeds
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: 3.14.1
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Plugins/RSSyl

I've been using the RSSyl plugin to read a set of the same RSS feeds for many
years. A couple of months ago (can't remember exactly when) some of the feeds I
follow started to show weird dates for the news items - they all look like

'Thu,  1 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT'

For example the Debian security feed "https://www.debian.org/security/dsa-long"
when opened from a browser have proper dates for the news items but in claws
mail they all show as the start of the epoch time. The same goes for the
SecurityFocus feed "http://www.securityfocus.com/rss/vulnerabilities.xml". On
the other hand the OpenSource scurity feed for example
"http://seclists.org/rss/oss-sec.rss" when opened from a browser has the news
dates in the same format as the problematic feeds above and in claws mail the
dates show OK.
