When the archive disk group and RMAN backup location is full

Sometimes I am faced with a situation where the disk group meant for storing archivelogs is full and the Disk based
RMAN backup location is full as well. What would you do in such a situation ?

This usually happens with our QA/UAT DBs during apps testing of certain type which causes huge amount of redo is generated.

We don't directly backup to tape. The disk based backups are moved to tape every two weeks by our SysAdmin.
