I'm not sure if this is a surprise to you, but donating power, network
bandwith and rack space is also a donation. Debian has always
depended on donations to keep its infrastructure working.

I am not convinced that this is an essensial part fo debians free
infrastructure, as the infrastructure isn't without cost, and this
cost come from people and compaines donating it to debian.
