As far as I noticed last new maintainers were proceeded on February.
And it seems that they are proceeded in some bigger groups. I mean
almost always more than 3-4 applicants became maintainers (at least in
AM weekly reports).

I know that DAM isn't only for new maintainers processes. Seems that
I simply chose wrong time (before release) to became maintainer ;)
I'm happy that it was worse in the past... not now ;)

Don't get me wrong. I don't want to hurry anybody. I know that in such
big project as Debian, new members have to be checked very careful.
There are plenty of people which count on Debian's quality.
