Debian contributor Register of Interests

Hi all,

>From time to time (usually during flamewars) the issue of potential conflicts
of interests sometimes comes up in various places in our around our community.

I wish to first state that I have never felt that any Debian contributor that
I know has ever acted against the best interests of the project. I have no
personal concerns about conflicts of interest with any of my Debian colleagues.

However in the interests of transparency I feel that a voluntary, opt-in
"Register of Interests" is a good idea for the project. I feel that such a list
(populated) would demonstrate the transparency and openness that are part of
our project's values.

To that end I sat down just now to create it. Unfortunately wiki.d.o appears
to have died whilst I was doing so. Here's the wiki text that I will be
submitting at my next opportunity:

> This is a voluntary, opt-in register of Debian contributor's "Interests"
> (such as: employer).
> On occasion the issue of a conflict of interest is raised within the project,
> especially around topics with many differing or passionate views. The
> intention of this list is for those who agree to clearly indicate any
> potential "Interest" that they may have, for transparency.
> The following people have added themselves to this list. No-one should assume
> that the presence or absence of a person from this list implies any conflict
> of interest or misconduct within Debian.
> || '''User''' || '''Interest''' || '''From''' || '''Until''' ||
