Hi everyone,

Bumping this, since I forgot to put "PATCH" in the subject line before.

Subject: [PATCH] org-capture: fix expansion of %T when capturing to a datetree

* org-capture.el (org-capture-set-target-location): Use a narrower
regular expression to replace a time range by its start time when
setting :default-time, so that dates do not get mangled.
