Interestingly enough, the applicant that started this thread is still in
an unchanged position, since September. I'm afraid that your assessment
of Joerg's activities did not work out. The past two months, the DAM has
processed exactly four people (one of which was fast-tracked because of
his birthday...?!), of which only one actually has an account at this

I believe that (effectively) replacing one DAM with another did not
really resolve the issue. I also believe that a solution like making the
current FD-members also a DAM could help to spread the workload over
three people instead of one, and each of them could check a report in
one pass.

Essentially, the FD checks the completeness of the report (judging from
the available documentation). This check is needed to not bother the DAM
with incomplete reports. Combining the FD- and DAM-check into one would
reduce the total time spent per candidate and distribute the work over
three instead of one. That could be a significant improvement.

What's the reason that this can't be done?
