I'm not any of the people to whom this question was directed, so, since this 
is the Internet, I think I'll put in a response.  Particularly since I know 
absolutely zero about this particular selection.

I think if you ask around, you will find that more than a month is not out 
of the question for a delay between an application being made and a decision 
being announced.  Certainly it can be less time, but I'm sure it has a lot 
to do with ALL the people involved in the process having the time to have 
time to think about it.

In any case, I'm not sure that, if it were me wondering, if I'd ask about it 
publically, on the list -- since that *could* be construed as an attempt to 
pressure a decision through appealing to peer pressure.  This is not to 
suggest that you shouldn't have done it, I'm just saying I wouldn't have 
done it this way, and why.  Me, I'd have asked them privately - unless I 
felt I really needed the pressure of the gallary - but then I can be an 
asshole (for instance, this message could have just as well been sent 
privately, but if I'd done so, I wouldn't have had the audience, and I do so 
love an audience).
