Description:
------------
The documentation on the date() function at https://www.php.net/manual/en/function.date describes the code as for an RFC2822 formatted date.

This is pedantic, I know, but RFC2822 has long been obsoleted by RFC5322.

To what exactly are you referring to?  Maybe consider to provide a

The documentation I was referring to has been moved to

	https://www.php.net/manual/en/datetime.format.php

In it, the description for the “r” format code says:

	» RFC 2822 formatted date

RFC 2822 has been obsoleted by RFC 5322:

Ah, thanks!  I get your point, but I'm not quite sure if we should
change that (it is technically not wrong to refer to RFC 2822),
and there actually is DateTimeInterface::RFC2822/DATE_RFC2822
which we cannot rename for BC reasons.
