The total time it took you to convince the relevant people in Debian
that you should be a DD was 301 days. Of those 301 days, you spent 4 and
a half hours working on it (along with five uploads of your packages,
and apparently a sponsored NMU).

I wonder how much time your advocate, your AM, FD and the DAMs spent on
your application. If we're ending up with DDs spending more time on the
n-m process than the applicants working through it, that'd seem like
a bug.

Of course, waiting for other people to do things is a pretty common
state of affairs, in Debian and elsewhere. So maybe you should add a few
hundred days to your "time spent" on the grounds that your patience was
taken into account as part of the process.
