Well, to give people the benefit of the doubt, it may be that Joerg *has*
worked on your application several times, but has repeatedly gotten to a
sticking point which required another round of correspondence with your AM?
Have you talked to your AM to see whether this is the case?

I do note that https://nm.debian.org/nmstatus.php?email=troy.heber@hp.com
shows a "time of last action" in September; so indeed, it doesn't look as
though you're being repeatedly passed over, but that *something* is
happening -- just not the something you're looking for yet. :)
