Thanks. The OBF has had AWS credits in the past but for a specific
group activity - a codefest/hackathon event, e.g.:


If anyone has recently been successful in received AWS credits
for running infrastructure for a non-profit or open source project,
I'd be interested to learn more.


Does this mean none of the other SPI projects currently pay for
AWS at the moment?

For larger customers Amazon does offer an invoice based
system for AWS, but I doubt that would be relevant here.
