ID: 131 🔗 Closed (Not a Bug) datetime2 1.5.3 2019-05-29 16:57:08 showdayofmonth setting wrongly said as ignored

## Report

The compilation of the example given in Month/Year Format in Latex displays a warning: "Package datetime2 Warning: Region english-base' has ignored the following settings: showdayofmonth=false on input line 20." But, in fact, it is taken in account.

### MWE

\listfiles

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[en-US]{datetime2}
\begin{document}
\today

\DTMlangsetup{showdayofmonth=false}
\today

\DTMlangsetup{showdayofmonth=true}
\today
\end{document}


## Evaluation

If the optional argument is missing to the command \DTMlangsetup the settings are passed to all loaded modules. In this example, there are two modules: the base english module and the en-US module. The base module has no option and so warns about trying to set an unknown option. The en-US module supports the showdayofmonth option and sets it. You can avoid the warning by using the optional argument to explicitly set which module to pass the option to:

\DTMlangsetup[en-US]{showdayofmonth=false}


or use the starred version:

\DTMlangsetup*{showdayofmonth=false}
`

which doesn't issue a warning for unknown options.
