That was surely one point, especially one (dm) that in my view didn't
make any sanse (especially after you wrote she has sufficient
sponsorship potential in her teams).

Of course, that's the goal of dd_nu!  I was somewhat taken aback first
by the weirdness of the double application, and also because both the
declaration of intent and the advocacies could have used with a lot of
more details on what she has done, they are all about how generally
good Helen is and her potential…
Given indeed that is hard to track the work some dd_nu people do
(because our tooling pretty much sucks for non-packaging work), more
details than a dd_u (for whom looking up their packages is easy) are

A detail that may not be known to everybody: since what I believe is
less than a year, dd_nu people could be granted DM rights like DMs (as
somebody can't be dd_nu and dm at the same time).
