To be more explicit, if you want to accept funds and a donations, you
need to be a legal organization.  The overhead involved in that is
non-trivial and the developers here do not want to deal with that, and I
don't blame them.

There's also no real need for it, I don't understand why you keep
insisting there is given how well things have been working so far.
