I wonder why a _Debian Account Manager_ is limited to follow the "New
Maintainer procedure", if the NM procedure is nothing more then a
process meant to _help_ the DAM (as in reducing the work load by
splitting it across several people). That is - to my knowledge - the
whole sense of the NM-processes and is also what it states on its page

"We are a group of Debian developers who have volunteered to assist the
Debian Account Managers in processing new applicants to be Debian
maintainers. "
