I think you are wrong.

it should probably be a bit more open than it is today, but I really
don't see the point of getting a bunch more maintainer who will go MIA
in a few months.

And having people whine about NM right now is kinda silly: samosa, aka
db.d.o is down and until it's up, the DAM can't create any accounts.
