Well, I guess I can live with that. Some people are more equal than
others, but that's hardly news.
It still leaves me with the question of why hasn't an applicant been
processed after half a year, though. I mean, the process should be a
FIFO most of the time: the first person submitting an application
should be the first person getting an AM and should be the first person
being looked at after the AM submits the final report, shouldn't it?
For some time I thought AM-assignment was a completely automated
process (which should it be different?), but at some point it became
clear to me that there's a much larger degree of manual intervention
than what I expected.
I must admit I haven't been paying much attention to the discussion
since the last flamewar on this topic, but my impression is that the AM
process is moving much slower than, say, a year ago. If someone comes
out and says "well, there are 1100+ people on this project, we don't
really need anymore at the moment", that's _fine_. But then someone
has to come out and _say_ that.
