RSS Feed Localised Dates

Hi everyone,
I am having some hard times validating a custom RSS feed for a publication. My homepage uses a custom template which pulls articles from two different collections: #blog and #rivista (magazine in english) So I had to create also a custom RSS template for that page.

  /: home
    template: home-rss
    content_type: text/xml

Since the publication language is set to Italian, the date helper renders the dates with italian month and day name:

<pubDate>{{date format="ddd, DD MMM YYYY HH:mm:ss ZZ"}}</pubDate>


<pubDate>dom, 05 lug 2020 17:55:15 +0200</pubDate>

That invalidates the whole feed and I can’t use anymore it to generate automatic RSS campaigns with Mailchimp.

Is there any way to force the data helper on English language? Or any workaround on the feed?
Thanks in advance for your help

Sidenote: the automatic generated RSSs such as render the dates in english and the feeds are correct.


Sorry for upping so old post but is there any clean way to print a RFC 822 date when Ghost is not in english base language using “date” helper ?
