Time tracking countdown
We use Redmine to track bugs and features on projects for each of our clients. We have a set retainer time each month for the number of hours we will work on their project for and log time on each issue to keep track of this. Would it be possible to have a 'Time remaining' value instead of/as well as 'Spent time' on the project Overview page so they can see how much is left that month, similar to having a bank balance rather than a value of how much money you've spent. or is this already possible?

Why isn't there any progress on this feature. ETC's are a widely accepted model for project management. The entire
PMP (Project Management Professional) certification is focused around ETC's.
Some heavy players that compete with Redmine (FogBugz, JIRA) having been providing this for quite a while.
Given that Redmine can also tie hours to a budget using different rates per developer and task, it would make it a superb project management tool for the contractual business industry and not just for internal organizational project tracking.
