As Marc said, there was a queue of over 60 people awaiting DAM approval
before Jörg was assigned to this task, and the backlog is being cleared,
which probably results in longer delays for now. Hopefully, when there
are no more prehistorical applications needing reviewing/responding to,
the DAM approval/rejection time will decrease considerably.

I am pretty sure that the applications are processed as quickly as
possible, limited by the time constraints that affect the people doing
the job. Creating such deadlines will most likely simply not work.
