 OIX certified organizations must provide an accurate and monthly report on
Government Information Requests and actions taken related to the requests.
You can see an example here http://xmission.com/transparency

With regards to Patriot 215 and FISA 701, there are recommendations for
warrant canaries. Obviously, much trickier.

I think the point is about leadership and taking small, but giant, steps. I
hope that everyone in the infrastructure follows this lead and does exactly
the same thing.
