Freedom to Leave

The project liaison may decide that the project is leaving SPI at any
time.  Any assets and money held by SPI for the project may be
transferred to a 501(c)3 US non-profit of the liaison's choice, or
simply held until expended.

probably better to just have them handle donations instead of domains
or servers. and to have them reimburse developers instead of purchasing
servers so that anything purchased is owned by that developer and not
SPI. because it will be a pain to find another us nonprofit. unless
thats something you guys want? spi ownership of servers , so no one
devel can sit on it...

"5% of the remainder is deducted for SPI overhead," not a bad fee.

i have no problem with this, aside from the fact that it all seems
pretty bureaucratic and i havent heard of spi-inc before.
