I started the "DD, uploading" process first, then noticed the "you
should be DM for 6 months" note on one of the pages. OK, I'll start the
DM process, too!

It appears that the DM process could be completed in fewer steps. That
could allow someone to `dcut dm -uid mshuler --allow ifmetric`, for
instance, which is currently waiting on a sponsor from either the
previous uploader or someone on d-mentors (requested, but haven't heard
back yet). In the mean time, I can work through the next DD stage once
an AM has been assigned.

I've been contributing longer than the DM process has existed, so
personally, I don't have a strong feeling either way: do DM first, or go
on with DD, uploading.

I appreciate the reply, Gunnar. If you or anyone else has advice on
going ahead and doing both processes in parallel or dropping one, I'll
take it. :)

Warm regards,
