Daniel Dowd commented on LANG-986:
----------------------------------

Is this improvement something that can be worked on? If so I would like to take it on.

> The method DurationFormatUtils.formatDuration does not validate that the format is applicable.
The method does not calculate months and years, so these values will be 0 if the format contains
y or M.
> Perhaps the method should throw IAE if one of the unused format chars is used?
