Covered all maintenance expenses with donations

Reality is a bitch and even small hobby projects require some financial funds to sustain, especially if the developers try to apply the best practices and techniques, for example in the field of monitoring and deployment, which require some decent amount of money.

But yesterday our Patreon page had reached 48$ of donations per month, which covers the monthly expenses of 30$. And that means I don't have to pay anything out of my own pocket anymore, because I am already poor as it is :/

It's still pathetic but hey, it's a small win.
