I think some confusion may have arisen from Helen's application to dm
first and then soon after to dd_nu as well.

In general this is an acceptable combination of statusses
(even though it might keep DSA on their toes :). Not all contributions to
Debian are easily seen or involve uploading to the archive, but I am still
keen to recognise them.

dd_nu allows recognition of work in Debian, voting rights and some official
standing; whilst dm means we delegate deciding someone's readiness to
upload limited packages to the archive to those people who work with them
more closely.

In Helen's particular case, I have spoken with her in person and her
application to dm first was an error. She has sufficient sponsorship
potential in the team for uploads not to be a problem, and addition of dm
status or conversion to dd_u at a later date is not a problem. I'll
therefore shortly cancel the dm application.
