[FoRK] billing for travel days?

It's a contractual issue for our professional services, but we try to
get the customer to pay for the first 8 hours worked per day -- if you
can do it in a day trip, for example.

If you were a roofer or plumber, you'd probably charge for travel time.

A smattering of minor projects in the last month: nothing I can think of.
