 That would be, indeed, A Really Good Thing(TM).

 Same thing for "being held back without any obvious reason to outside
 observers".  I've been told off-list that Eray is being held back
 because of "special circumstances" surrounding his case.  Allow me to
 be very straighforward here: I don't care about _Eray_ the person, but
 I care about the fact that when I go to http://nm.debian.org/ and look
 at his application I see:

    Application Manager Comments

    Debian Account Manager Comments
    Have asked applicant to get 5 sponsors.

 According to that information, he's been sitting at the DAM stage for
 _2 years_ and at some point the DAM asked him to get five sponsors for
 his application.

 The way I read that is that the DAM doesn't think it's appropiate to
 approve the application, but doesn't have any particular reason to
 reject it and has asked five developers to pitch in and say "yes, I
 think it should be approved".  That's fine for two months.  But two

 Someone will argue this is Eray's fault.  Be my guest ...

 We send nagmail for people at the advocate stage.  But we don't seem to
 have checks for people at the AM or DAM stages ("applicant has been
 waiting for two weeks but hasn't been yet accepted by AM", "applicant
 has been at the NM stage longer than three months and hasn't been put
 on hold", "applicant has been waiting for DAM approval for more than
 six months", ...)
