If something is unsatisfactory with relative dates, the reason is the strtotime function in PHP, not PmWiki which uses the date this function recognizes and returns. See also Relative formats on which relative dates are recognized, for example "this/last/next Aug" is not among the ones that are expected to be recognized. --Petko October 19, 2014, at 06:08 AM

A stamp in the future is unexpected,\\
we should handle it better:
