Hi Adam,

I'm copying the whole list with your note and this reply.  I hope 
that's OK.  I'm guessing others will be having the same question.

I think we should all do Statements of Interest, unless we've already 
got one posted (eg GNSO Counsellors and Board members).   I think 
it's better to over-disclose than to have a surprise somewhere down 
the line.  Again, it's fine to have an interest, just so we all know 
what it is.

Thanks for your question Adam,

m
