A good idea

Dunedin City Council has started a disclosure log of its LGOIMA requests, putting them all up on the web for people to see. Its a good idea, which should both reduce repeat requests, and also allow public checking of their decision-making, and I'm surprised more agencies aren't doing it. Its not as if it costs a lot, and it just seems to be a residual sense of secrecy which is the barrier.
