Hello Chris,

is there a reason you have not advocated Adam for DM yet?

I'd like to make sure this is really a DD advocacy and not a mistargeted
DM advocacy: those three packages have really low popcon and look like
they never received a single bug report. I see other activity of Adam in
the BTS, though.

There is now a preference to have people enter DD once they have
accumulated some experience, possibly also as DM which allows
unsupervised uploads, unless there are reasons not to do so.

The goal is to have people advocated when they are ready to have a DD
account *right now*, and aim at a swift NM process both for the
applicant and for the AM.  See http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2009/11/msg00005.html
at "Advocation in the NM process".
