It's a flaw in the state machine :/ but one that will be easy to fix :)

The time line is
12 Apr Alander signed up to the NM process
28 Jun  mnencia agreed to be Alander's advocate, or Alander "volunteered
        him".  Email sent to mnencia

Nothing else happened.  mnencia didn't reply back to the email.

My proposal is that we change the 3 week warning/ 6 weeks deletion to
keep working until the advocate check is complete and not just the assignment 
of an advocate.  That may mean some slight re-wording of some documents

If there is a general consensus, I'll make the changes (or tbm will beat
me to it :)
