These two statements are mutually problematic. If you want to use the
whole pool of AMs for this, then you stand a chance (I don't know how
large) of getting two such shoddy AMs. If you use just a small group,
you'll have the same problems as the DAM, ftp-master, and maybe even
tech-ctte.

The problem of identifying which AMs are and are not up to the job is
approximately as difficult and flamewar-inducing as the problem of
processing applicants in the first place; this process will repeat to
the Nth degree.
