1 Per a later update, it was a user error during construction.  Someone accidentally drilled a hole in the exterior wall.  He then patched it with glue... that couldn't survive vacuum over the long haul.  Since meticulous records are kept, they already found the drunken bolshevik* responsible.
*No idea if he was really drunk, or a bolshevik, or just a clumsy idiot.

2 Ubu, where are you seeing reporting that they identified the person who drilled the hole?  I haven't seen that reported anywhere, the most recent reporting I've seen is on Rogozin's claim that this might have been sabotage, possibly even by ISS personnel.  Of course, that's generally being treated as deflection from admitting that they have such serious quality problems...
