Hi Daven,

We use the format data in CLDR as the standard. Attached is the sl.xml 
in CLDR. In your fix, it's better to be
                     "EEEE, dd. MMMM y", // full date pattern
                     "dd. MMMM y", // long date pattern

Blow is the format defined in CLDR:

- <dateFormatLength type="full">
- <dateFormat type="standard">
<pattern type="standard">EEEE, dd. MMMM y</pattern>
- <dateFormatLength type="long">
- <dateFormat type="standard">
<pattern type="standard">dd. MMMM y</pattern>

For test case:

To fix format data of one locale, you must modify corresponding 
regression test:

In the end of the file,  add
#bug xxxxxx
FormatData/sl/DateTimePatterns/4=EEEE, dd. MMMM y
FormatData/sl/DateTimePatterns/5=dd. MMMM y

In the end of comments @bug, add the bug number.
