[CCWG-ACCT] DOCUMENT - Recommendation 1 – Inspection Rights (first reading)

Hi all

Just a quick note to say I much prefer the lawyers' proposed approach on
inspection rights, and do not support the Board's proposal.

As a matter of principle, the use of these rights is most likely to help
inform a decision about using the other community powers. Using the same
process as that which applies to those community powers is overkill: this
*should* be a simpler process.

As a matter of practical effect, the requirement that an SO or AC agree the
request will by itself prevent vexatious or over-frequent use. There is no
chance of, say, the ccNSO Council, randomly & inappropriately deciding to
exercise such a right.

So since the practical fears the Board noted aren't really valid, and since
there is wide agreement as far as I can tell about the importance of these
rights, in my opinion we should go with what our lawyers have suggested
here, and be clear with the language in the next version of our document.
That's the most workable and straight forward approach IMO.
