Backlog assistance?

Greetings all..

I was recently browsing through the list archives here, and noted that a 
few weeks back Russell Nelson <nelson at> stated something to 
the effect of:

 > Why isn't it approved?  Because we got hideously backlogged.

And so, I have a couple of questions..

First, are things still backlogged, and if so, how much?

Secondly, assuming that there is still a backlog of some degree, is 
there anything that I, as a newbie to this group but a reasonably 
legalese-savvy and intelligent open-source advocate might be able to do 
to help out in this regard?  I can't necessarily promise huge amounts of 
spare time for such things, but if there are things where having another 
set of eyes in the loop here and there or having somebody to help 
organize some part of things would help with, or whatever, I'm willing 
to do what I can to help.

(I started looking at this list because I'm currently in the process of 
finishing up a license document which I was looking at submitting, but I 
figure if folks are currently backlogged I should do what I can to 
reduce that situation before loading you all up with more stuff :) )
