Excluding weekends when calculating due dates

Has anybody done any work with calculating ticket due dates in terms of
working days instead of simple calendar days? (We’d like to have
high-priority tickets due within three days of the request, excluding
weekends.)

We’ve done work related to this. Have a look at Business::Hours in CPAN.

Look at the RT::BusinessHours module. It should help.
