Because they are a part of the debian community, and probably have a
reasonable understanding of debian politics.

Im not suggesting its ok that people remain in the queue for 6 months,
fixing NM is a different problem.
If they havent been rejected in 6 months then they must be a borderline
case, if we give them some more rights then it could help the DAM to
make a decision.
But as it requires a vote its a mute point.
According to http://www.debian.org/vote/ the last non-election vote that
completed was in June 1999, almost 4 years ago. And there has only ever
been 4 items voted on, 1 on the constitution, and 3 about the logo.
When is the new voting scheme going to adopted ?
