Seems like quite a good idea to me. I've read the Conservancy page and agree
something like this is sorely needed, including by SPI, but doesn't exist yet.
The suggested amount even seems reasonable given how much it would help us
scale to the benefit of all associated projects and the few alternative uses
for our general reserves.

We may want to add this to next week's agenda after allowing the intervening
week for feedback here. I see they list SPI as an endorser with our
encouragement to donate and support. It's possible they did this based on
Bdale's quote as SPI president, but I wouldn't have a problem explicitly voting
to endorse (I'd obviously vote yes) for more emphasis.
