Remember to cover the basics, that is, what you expected to happen and
what in fact did happen.  You don't know how to make a good report?  See

Your bug report will be posted to the Org-mode mailing list.

Hi all:

org-get-current-options uses the following line to fill the `#+DATE:' 
property in a new file:

(format-time-string (substring (car org-time-stamp-formats) 1 -1))

While this is correct, I think it is too much tightly coupled with the 
org-time-stamp-formats constant defined in org.el.

I would like to suggest to add a new defun (possibly interactive) to add a 
plain actual date. Something along the lines of:

(defun org-current-time-stamp-string ()
   "Returns the current time stamp string in the org format."
   (format-time-string (substring (car org-time-stamp-formats) 1 -1)))

(defun org-insert-current-time-stamp-string ()
   "Insert at point the current time stamp string in the org format."
   (interactive)
   (insert (org-current-time-stamp-string)))

If those functions already exist, it would be then more appropriate to use 
them in that function `org-get-current-options`.

Hi Diego,

this is not a bug -- please use `org-submit-bug-report' for bugs

I'm not sure to understand -- can you try to rephrase your request?  
What do you want to achieve exactly?

Thanks,
