Hi all

There are quite a few of us who know the innards on the list,  
unfortunately most of us dont have the time available to answer  
questions, so we answer them when we can.

One place to catch the developers is on irc, or filing a bug in  

The problem is in opac-reserve.pl line 203
$fee = 1;

You can make that $fee = 0;

That will turn it off, it'll be fixed to use a system preference, or  
the CalcReserveFee subroutine for the next release.
