My understanding is that the BTS is still used for the initial phases of DM applications, and RT is only used for the request to add the DM key to the keyring to keyring-maint. keyring-maint use RT because we sometimes have a need to deal with information before it becomes public (eg a compromised key) and it is much easier for us to have one system that we always use, rather than special casing some things. We try to move things that don't need embargoed to the public "Keyring" queue swiftly, but unfortunately the read-only public access login to RT is no longer available so this is unhelpful to anyone who isn't a DD. You'd have to ask the RT team about reversing that decision. J. -- I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo, what | .''`.
