(I thought I sent this, but apparently I did not)

Summary: Implement <input type=datetime-local>, to allow users to choose
a date and time in a nice way.



Platform coverage: All (Android had support for this already)

Preference: dom.forms.datetime-local and dom.forms.datetime-local.widget
(need to be two preferences because Android used to ship true & false,

DevTools bug: N/A

Other browsers: Both Blink and WebKit support this.

web-platform-tests: Tests for the web-exposed bits exist in various places:

The actual UI is not spec'd and thus uses mochitests.

Nope, we use the same mechanism as for the existing <input type=date>
and <input type=time>.
