...I hate to butt in once again on that subject, but what about people whose
application is stalled (in the DAM approval stage), they complain (both to
their AM and here, on debian-devel) and yet nothing's happening? (yes, yes,
I mean yours truly)

I certainly do care about Debian - I've just (after long struggle with
myself, as I don't like the sponsorship idea) gotten my first packages into
Debian and so what? Where can I ask what the heck is going on with _my_
application? I asked questions, received no answers - maybe I should call
somebody on the phone? Maybe I should fly over to USA or somewhere to ask
somebody else in person? I don't care - just want _some_ answer.
