  sure, the formulation was bad. I mean, technically. I implied that I

  Sure, that would be IMHO a bit better than DM maybe. But it does not
solves the "once I have an AM report, it takes it 6 months until I have

is long, and not very entertaining, hence I don't expect this to be done
every day. OTOH 6 months feels too long.
