comment How can I get paid for reducing technical debt?
perhaps a better title is "How should the cost of reducing technical debt on bad code be billed?" , or something along those lines?

comment How can I get paid for reducing technical debt?
@robertharvey: yeah he's cleaning up the code on his own time so that the customer that would be billed for updates doesn't have to pay more than if the code was well-written. I think his company needs to eat the majority of the costs (if they occur). It's reasonable that the customer pay some of the time, but if you overbill because the code is crap that's a good way to lose good-will and future business.
