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.
