No, the point is that an AM who processes one applicant still helps, as
you don't need to get someone else to do it. It's not as if we have a
limit for the number of AMs.

More or less.

Right, because *new* developers have no idea about the NM process and
just need the reminder that it exists to jump up and help.
Sorry, the whole thing doesn't work this way: You need to invest a lot
of time into AM work, so you need to care about it. Just asking every
new developer will not help.
