I don't think this is much different than the PSF accepting funding from organizations like CZI on behalf of projects like pip, but I would definitely recommend checking with your employer. We can just exclude twine from this for now, I'd hate to potentially lose you as a maintainer.

Correct, all funds would go to the PSF, earmarked for the PyPA to distribute as it sees necessary. You would not be required to receive funding as a lifter.

I'm in the same position, but I had the impression that in this case you'll not receive any compensation. Instead the Tidelift value gets donated to PSF. So the way I see you're not getting any compensation if you sign up for it. I might be missing here something though,
I need to check with my employer but it's likely this will cause me to have to resign from twine as a maintainer. My contract disallows me from receiving any compensation for F/OSS work and this will likely look an awful like that to the folks in legal. Sent from my phone with my typo-happy thumbs.
