Actually, no, way less than half the current backlog are applicants
from the shut down period.

If that's all I had to do in my life, no, of course it wouldn't.
Unfortunately it's not.  Granted, DAM is becoming a problem, but a)
it's not the main problem (lack of contributing AMs is much more of a
problem), b) DAM appears worse than it actually is because my work on
it is sporadic and c) I am looking into fixing it (by taking on
mini-DAMers) in any event.

However, there is no longer any excuse for just whining about delays
in the new-maintainer process... if you don't like the delays, Chris,
feel to actually make a difference and sign up as an Application
