No. Much of the information is sensitive (IDs) and is only intended
for the FD and DAMs. And this wouldn't help much, anyway. If someone
needs to be assigned to a new AM, they should already be able to just
give the new AM their ID, proof of competance, answer some questions
about DFSG/Social Contract and be passed. Where's the big problem?
