We are talking about the case where the AM has recommended that the
applicant gets an account in december last year. It's in my personal
opinion extremely unfair that the applicant gets no answer from the DAM
while other applicants get their accounts within a few days after their AM
recommended them. You can always discuss the quality of the AMs and
whether an applicant should really become a developer but it's a minimum
amount of fairness I expect for someone who has already dedicated parts of
his spare time for Debian that he gets told that he was rejected and why
he was rejected instead of silently ignoring him.
