It's not a FIFO queue, it's up to the DAM to decide in what order he
processes the applicants. The same applies for the FD queue: they try to
match applicants with suitable AMs. This is nothing personal it might
take longer to go through all of the correspondence for one applicant
than it takes for another one. Please be patient, I'm sure your
application will be processed soon.

http://db.debian.org/machines.cgi lists several machines that are
accessable for "all" which means all it needs to get an account is to
mail the admin providing him with a reason and an FTBFS bug is imo a
good reason therefore.

polite, would it?
