Maybe you didn't ask right :) But you will probably get the same
response as I got - he'll get arround to it when he has time.

But *if* the DAM or AM would need to write a status report every
week or two re: applications they are responsible for, there would be a tendancy to
1. reject the applicant (eg. when applicant doesn't reply to
email or doesn't know what make does)
2. accept the applicant
And the reason for that is because people don't want to write reports!
