If that is truly the case then the DAM comments should reflect that. As
it stands currently I would expect that if the user was able to meet
DAM's request of getting 5 sponsors then he be accepted. As others have
stated this process should be transparent. If there's a problem with
an application it should be clearly noted, much like the way bugs are
currently handled, for all to see.
