Have you thought about splitting services and migrate them to some hosted 

For example git to Github or Gitlab, DNS to some free providers as 
dns.he.net, wiki to some inexpensive hosting or even migrate to 
readthedocs.org or Github pages?
I know that build machine, rsync and probably main site would be still 
main issue and I don't know numbers such as requests, i/o, cpu or monthly 
traffic, but maybe there is also some solution for it (like spin up one 
AWS instance to test build something and then kill it, or use some CI/CD 
Splitting would also help to find friendly hosting/sponsor for other parts 
of site, like rsync could be handled by some of many Slackware mirrors.

$1500 is a real money and I believe that it would be better to get rid of 
these costs instead of worrying every year about paying it.

Anyway, thank you for your great work!
