According to their web page: "Donations made are general donations to
the Software Freedom Conservancy, Inc.,"

Doesn't general donation == unrestricted?

That's the only serious problem I have with this idea.  Accounting
systems in general are a long-running sore.  The co-op is currently
looking at extending Prometeo ERP, but we have sadly no spare
workers I can use to do a full published evaluation for quite a while.
