There is no reason whatsoever that this should only be done by a single
person.  I would expect that _every_ person contributing more than two
patches per month should be able, after uploading a patch, to be running and thus emptying the queue.

This has the consequences that

a) his own submission will get timely and qualified testing
b) the queue does not build up
c) it is not always the same people who get stuck with testing
d) he can be more nonchalant about testing his submission in advance
   since a bad test upload mostly implies more work for himself, and
   then not all that much.
