Its not QAs decision, if the breakage was intentional or not. A single
body, in this case, QA, cannot be both the police and the judicary.
QA can and should be capable of finding wrongs, preventing further
damage and causing the problem to get fixed. Thats damage limitaion.
If preventing further damage involves revoking commit rights pending
full investigation, thats fine by me.
Determining the root cause, and determining long term prevention takes
some investigation. QA may present evidence but its Devrels job to
weigh the evidence and pass sentence.
