That depends on i) how many other NMs are in the (internal) DAM queue
before you and ii) how much time the DAM has to process applicants.

Well, the 'time of last action' is 2004-03-11. I assume that was the
time the frontdesk decided that your application is complete and pushed
it to the DAM. That's still over a month though, but please consider
that the DAM has also some other important positions in Debian and
especially before a release is usually quite busy with other things. Two
months of waiting is not optimal, but it is not unusual either. In fact,
in the past, things were much worse.

We understand completely and are sorry for the delay. But you have to
keep in mind that processing applications takes quite a long time for
the DAM, there is more involved than just creating the account.
