Gitbook is free for open source projects. How is $180/m being spent on webflow for what we have? And a further $140/m for hosting...

Either needs another look at options chosen, or someone’s quietly pocketing this.
I'll let @DBGrow elaborate gitbook/webflow.
Regarding forum: hosting $60/mo (with VAT), mailgun ~$10/mo, amazon S3 backups ~$10/mo, server administration $60/mo.
What is wrong with it in your opinion?

Hey. These are all just the same ongoing costs that were approved by the website committee a while back. Nothings changed. We were never asked by the committee to cancel any services either, as we've wait for good direction on what to do with the website come rebranding and then now come direction from new director. If we want to cancel these services then that can be a separate discussion. I will check with Spencer and make sure that these are all the correct costs, that nothings changed since last round.

Also come on, you think Anton or DBGrow is purposefully going to the effort to secretly pocket a couple hundred bucks a month here? Theres hundreds of thousands of FCT in the grant pool to be had by developers if they apply for any dev grants 😂

I'll double check these numbers for you though
