Plugin Directory - localize update date

Description

Related: #1269

Plugin pages have Last Updated string with a USA date format.

In Israel and other Arab States, we use different date format. US use m/d/y, we use d/m/y. It's always confusing for us to try to guess what date format is used? is it the hebrew one, the US format or some other custom format.

It would be nice to have localized date format. It would be even nicer to have the same format like in the theme directory.

That format is Y-M-D, not m/d/y. We use Y-M-D because it's understood pretty much everywhere.

Rather than localize the format, I would instead prefer to display it in a format that can not be misunderstood. Like, "September 16, 2015" or something. The month could be translated, of course.

@Otto42, On the theme directory we use "September 16, 2015" (Date format: "F j, Y").

See ticket #1269 - localizing the date format.

@Otto42, Just noticed that in the WordPress dashboard, when you see the plugin details, the date format is human diff time.

Maybe we should do the same in the plugin repo? What do you think?
