SFC's web site says http://conservancy.softwarefreedom.org/
"These benefits include, most notably, protection from personal
liability for project developers."
This sounds to me like SFC might have bought the indemnity insurance
that has been suggested to SPI a few times, but dismissed as too
expensive or not desirable. Alternatively, SFC might just be
describing the protection of having a corporation responsible, which
SPI also has.

I meant that I hadn't checked the old web site, not that it vanished.
