Anyone care to summarise the differences between SFC and SPI? Both provide umbrella legal and financial services for Free Software projects (in a US legal context). SFC appears to provide licence enforcement too, and now has an actual employee. Any other reasons why projects should choose one or the other?

SPI compared ot Conservancy

Conservancy is generally more actively engaged with the projects than SPI. Also, Conservancy projects become legally part of the Conservancy, which offers some liability protection for project leaders. Those are two major differences; there are probably many small differences as well.

I think it's important for our community to have a selection of fiscal sponsoring organizations, so that projects can pick one that fits right for their project culturally.
