I think this is not a bug. bpo-35535 is probably also intended behavior, but that is less certain.

The misunderstanding here is that %W does not give you the ISO week number, from the documentation:

    %W: Week number of the year (Monday as the first day of the week) as a decimal number.
        All days in a new year preceding the first Monday are considered to be in week 0.

If you want the ISO week number, I think you need %V, which *is* the ISO week:

    >>> datetime(2018, 12, 31).strftime("%V %W")                                                                                            
    '01 53'

I believe this ticket can be closed.
