Assistance with Figuring Out Release Capacity

The "Release Capacity" dialog allows users to enter in a capacity amount. however, the dialog doesn't much help in figuring the hours, days nor weeks.

Then I can multiply the 22 days by the number of developers that we have on staff (e.g., 22d x 3 developers = 66d). It would be helpful if the dialog can provide hints such as the number of business days based on the start and end dates of a release.

We then plug this number into Aha. A long-winded way to say "yes it would be great to not have to calculate this externally".
