Is that true?  Is the NM team awaiting help to improve the process, or
is it only awaiting help to operate the current process?

Last year, I suggested improving the NM process into something like a
modern education system by splitting the training, assessment,
moderation and awarding; and making the process more focused on an NM
work portfolio instead of the AM report.  I remember some off-list
emails, but I don't remember the specific reasons why it floundered.

Now we're another year on, NMs are still often given make-work tasks,
still seem to wait arbitrary lengths of time, still rely for too much
on one AM for far too long and restart with a new AM in case of
problems (if they are lucky).

The Debian Maintainers model would be a good way to build an NM
portfolio, so I support the idea.
