Not to retroactively rain on your parade, but either you cost them less than 30k
a year, or that was a lucky case of departmental politics of invest vs. payroll.

Especially for tiny teams, the decision of spending 6k€ or hiring a new
developer to maintain the toolchain is, sadly, a no-brainer.
Unless you already have a strong commitment to open source tools, of course, but
then it's more policy and publicity.
