Yes, that definitely is something I consider to be useful and a thing I
do now and then,

.. but to be honest, I tend to push not so much about being transparent
rather directly open source and open standards.
The example Anke gives towards the end - no clear os policy while there
is a known strong dependency on US software vendors - is well chosen.

Public administrations of course have a selective memory/view, and tend
to use just information that supports their agenda.

Cheers,
Cor
