Does Jira cater for part-time resources ?

I'm a part-time developer, I work 3 days a week and I'm using Jira and Greenhopper to manage my project. By default a week is 5 days so Jira is not correctly translating my estimates (in days) into weeks. Is there a way to configure Jira for part-time staff ?

In the Time Tracking admin page, you can change how many working days there are in a week.

To get there, type "g g" from any JIRA page to bring up the admin quicksearch, start typing "Time Tracking" and press enter.

However, this is a global setting - so if some of the team is part-time and some is full-time, or the instance is also used for other projects, this won't help.
