Editing to avoid confusion

Do not confuse Open Collective Foundation with Open Source Collective: https://opencollective.com/opensource/updates/regarding-the-announcement-to-dissolve-open-collective-foundation

This is even more confusing because the org behind Open Collective (opencollective.com) is called " Open Source Collective" whereas the org behind Open Source Collective (oscollective.org) is called Open Collective Foundation.

I believe the author here is confused as well

EDIT: I’m even more confused. Links from oscollective.org point back to opencollective.com. 😵‍💫

    So Patreon is the only workaround atm.

      Luckily not! There’s LiberaPay, which I find preferable to OpenCollective anyway. No confusion with hosts and it’s clearly non-profit.

        The problem is Liberapay is that it’s not a fiscal host. i.e.you need to take the money, declare taxes on it etc.
