member project of the Software Freedom Conservancy. Among other
benefits, the Buildbot project can now accept donations and can use
those assets to support and accelerate development of the software. If

financial and administrative services to member projects that develop
Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS). By joining Conservancy,
Buildbot obtains the benefits of a formal non-profit organizational
structure while keeping the project focused on software development
and documentation. Some benefits of joining Conservancy include the
ability to collect donations, hold assets on behalf of the project,
and some protection of the lead developers of the project from
personal liability when engaging in the activities of the project.
Software Freedom Conservancy, Inc. is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3)
