darcs joins the Software Freedom Conservancy

We are pleased to announce that Darcs has joined the Software Freedom Conservancy. The Conservancy is an organisation composed of Free and Open Source Software projects.

Joining it gives us the benefits of a formal legal structure: the ability to collect donations and hold assets, as well as protection of Darcs hackers from legal liability. The Software Freedom Conservancy is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization, so member projects can receive tax-deductible donations to the extent allowed by law.

Many thanks go to the SFC for their work to support the FOSS community.
