The main page summary for posts, and the "info box" that accompanies each post, includes a date abbreviation like: Dec 25 '19

But for posts in 2020, the abbreviation looks like: Apr 22 '0.

Clearly that's a bug — it should read: Apr 22 '20 using the last two digits of the year.

Hopefully an easy one to fix!
