Personally I'm not really convinced that the problem has been solved by
appointing a replacement DAM. This doesn't have anything to do with
Joerg personally, but that it's a continuation of the previous situation
where only one person is assigned to the job, and this person also has a
lot of other responsibilities in Debian drawing away his time. That
situation has not changed.

I think appointing a couple of people to the job would seriously help
the reliability and responsiveness of the DAM. More people, more work
done, people get bored less quickly, reduces the delay if one of the
members has other priorities, etc.

Has this been tried?
