Did not even checked it.  Most notable difference between SCSL and SPS
is up-do-date sources.  I.e. sources released under SCSL usually
are releasing about 2 months after acutal release and are just snapshot
of tree.  And SPS sources access (as I understand) provide access to
today's sources with all bugfixes, but without possibility to make
source release (i.e. it's not possible to release patchsets or anyting
like that).  After switch to SPS we'll have binary releases only.
