Hi all,

This would seem to be very relevant to all Wikimedians in residence or anyone in a compensated role: the WMF is putting out a new COI policy update. They are looking for feedback in the next 3 weeks.

I haven't looked at it yet very deeply, but this thread might be a good place for discussion on anything we might find interesting. Thanks.
