Rather than complaining and posing that people aren't doing their jobs,
and asking "which member of e release team is responsible for doing this
task?", you could _help_ instead.
I made a list of RC bugs that are still unfixed in sarge after they were
fixed for over a month in sid. You would have known that if you
subscribed to this list, but although you apparantly want to question
the release team's quality, you don't.
By the way, it isn't my job to track those bugs. It's indeed an issue,
and you could help by propose a constructive solution and/or produce a
list of relevant RC bugs, like I'm trying to do.
I'll soon generate that list again, but now also with all bugs regarding
frozen packages, as they won't proceed to sarge automatically. And now
that the full freeze comes closer, I'll include the bugs unfixed in
sarge for over 11 days.

You keep wanting to know who broke/did something, for what? Sue them? It
helps better if you try to look for solutions and/or politely (!) note
the problem to the relevant people (the maintainer(s), for example).
