At the moment DC uses the north american way of expressing dates and
assigns them in this form to the names of the Hotfixes. I propose another
naming scheme and will explain the reasons below.

This is the ISO 8601 format (abbreviated form).
First of all Zope is a product of a north american company but is used
worldwide. Not all countries use the american form of dates, so it would
be nice to have a standardized one (in my opinion this applies also to the
standard date functions in Zope).
The reasons for establishing ISO 8601 apply here as well:
- ordering of month and day are different in Europe and America,
this leads to difficulties interpreting date values
- ISO dates are sortable by string functions
- ISO dates are easy to parse by humans AND programs
