That's one of the things we need to fix. It should behave like the other
time entries, parsing 1d, 1w etc for days, weeks and so on. And display
in days.

I suspect that's because we have a long standing TODO about fixing hard
coded day lengths. We assume that a day is 8 hours in some places.

Ideally, both these issues should be fixed for the next release, we just
need someone to do it :) If you are interested in helping out, that
would be great!

By the way, we do most development discussion on the planner-dev list:
