I believe this (par. 4) is a statement of authority, not a statement of
Advisorship. It gives Adam the authority to speak on behalf of the
project to SPI. Think of it like a liaison thing. I expect that the
GNUstep project will nominate a person (possibly Adam) to be
Representative Advisor, and Adam will inform SPI of this fact. At that
point, Adam's status as liaison will be unnecessary.

My, that was a bit rambly. But I think I got my point across.
