I know its a little late for this but I would be mighty annoyed if
RedHat tried to do that. I don't want them setting or influencing my
rate schedule. I make between $75 and $125 doing minivend work and I
don't know if that is high or low but damnit, I want the fee scheduling
process to be something that is between me and my client. Thats it. 

Flat rate. Feh.
