I'm quite surprised to hear that from a downstream. I think as a downstream 
you should be aware of the steps currently undertaken by the KDE community to 
improve the situation. And many of these steps have been discussed also on 
this mailinglist - e.g. using Jenkins to generate and build the tarballs. I'm 
quite sure our sysadmins would appreciate help from an experienced downstream 
developer :-)

Given the current efforts on QA, I find your comment not helpful - neither for 
KDE, nor for you as a downstream.

As Albert already pointed out this is a "we" and we should work together and 
not against each other.
