fixed in both places

uhm. I'll leave that to people with more English knowledge than me. It

uhmm.. no. It's a enumeration of things we'd like to be informed of, not 
a question. it's not "Would we like to know ... ?" but "we like to know 
a b and c". there is a difference between: "We like to know. What 
problems ..? How would you?" and "we like to know [...] how would you"
