Elections might be a solution to that but even a meeting could help the situation. It seems to me that QA is more like one,two,three individual people doing all the work. It should be more like a team work, act as a team, backing up a member when he is being "attacked" by other devs because he "had to" step up and mess with their packages just to preserve future portage breakage.
