The stuff about "net" was in response to public recommendations; it
has never been defined how agreement is handled in the case of the
nm-committee. It only said 1/4 of the committee has to disagree;
I don't know how people who disagree with those who disagree
(i.e. who argree with the rejection) are handled. But I guess it onl
matters if 1/4 disagrees - if the other 3/4 agree with the DAM or
abstain might not matter. I'm not sure, though, to be honest.

This has been what the majority did so far.

No, there can be a GR about accepting the applicant against the DAM's
wish (you don't have to replace the DAM, just override him in that
