 If you enter a duration "14:00" into a duration field, it translates to
 "00:14:00" which is 14 minutes.

 The current error message for invalid DurationField says that this should
 be the format of durations: "[DD] [HH:[MM:]]ss[.uuuuuu]". But according to
 the actual behaviour, it should be: "[DD] [[HH:]MM:]ss[.uuuuuu]", because
 seconds are mandatory, minutes are optional, and hours are optional if
 minutes are provided.

 This seems to be a mistake in all Django versions that support the

 Also the duration fields could have a default help_text with the requested
 format, because the syntax is not self-explanatory.
