I assume there's some DSA to-do list kept somewhere? And that it's either 
FIFO, or prioritized in some defined way?

If the new assistant has access to that to-do list he could at least 
indicate howmany items are still in the DSA-queu before whatever request 
will be handled 

Dealing with incoming mail filtering out the relevant requests from spam, 
etc, and updating the to-dolist is probably also something that could be 
handled by the assistant

-> even if the new assistant acts purely as a secretary this would be a huge
   improvement over the current situation where DSA is a huge blax box that
   either produces a change or doesn't.
