As far the DAM issue goes: I find it necessary to reject people. But
if, we have to do so in an acceptable time spam. Having people wait
for DAM approval for months is simply bad.

For ftpmaster, rejecting a package with "try again, I might like it
the next time, or a colleague might" is remarkably bad.

How long did Eray wait for formal rejection? Did he receive regular
updates about the state of affairs?
