I vote in favor of adopting this conflict of interest policy.

I very much agree with the ideals of the conflict of interest policy, but
there are two things that seem like they'll be a minor hassle:

1. Article VI says we're each supposed to sign a statement that we've read and
understand the conflict of interest policy.  Maybe some sort of digital
signature would suffice?

2. Article VII says we're supposed to conduct periodic reviews to make sure
our spending is fair and conforms to our goals.  If we're not spending much
money, and don't have deals or partnerships with people on our board then I
would think this isn't really needed.
