I investigated the SFC a while back with a view to transferring the
copyright of my TagSoup software <>.  The
discussions I had by email and phone were extremely encouraging, but I
never followed through out of laziness.  I think, however, that they
take a very sensible hands-off approach: they handle money and other
assets (including copyrights), but leave technical direction to the
existing project leaders.  The list of member projects (Amarok, Boost,
BusyBox, Mercurial, Samba, Squeak, SWIG, Wine among many others) is
certainly encouraging.  The project can exit the Conservancy at any
time if we decide to set up our own legal organization later.  In the
U.S. at least, donations are tax-free.
