Github sponsors / stripe setup

Hey,

I'm trying to follow the docs at https://docs.opencollective.com/help/collectives/github-sponsors to setup our integration on Github with open collective. The docs however only reference the US entity. Is it possible to also setup this integration with the European Fiscal Host?

Thanks!

The Github Sponsors integration is only available for those fiscally hosted by Open Source Collective for now. If OC EU wants to talk to Github about getting set up, I can introduce them to our Github contact, but it's not likely to happen for some time due to Github's roadmap. However, you are welcome to start a parallel Collective with OSC to enable the Github Sponsors integration if you wish.

Oh alright, it'd be cool, if we could include that on the docs page linked above, so its clear that the integration only works with the US version.

It says right at the top of the page you linked: 
This option is currently only available for Collectives fiscally hosted by the Open Source Collective

So I would also be interested in this topic. As far as I am concerned, if we provide all information to the Stripe Connect Account we should be able to make this happen via the "Fiscal Host - Other" option. I have choosen this collective because you don't have that funny paragraph in the terms where you sign over all of your "Intelectual property" to the OSC. Thus I would adore if we could make it possible to setup Github Sponsors via this collective!

OSC's terms say no such thing, and in fact state the exact opposite :

As between the parties, Collective shall retain all right, title, and interest in any intellectual property of the Project, including any copyrights, trademarks, trade names, artwork, designs, logos, copy, and all other intellectual property.
