Insert Date

Insert Date

Just a tiny package to insert dates. I version all my elisp packages as "%Y.%m.%d" and wanted to quickly insert that in the magit tag prompt.

Another similar package is insert-time but I found it too limited, as it only supports inserting four (setq-able) formats.

No customizations are supported, I don't find it necessary because I'm the only person using this package.
