Re: 0.94 tests back in shape and some guidelines
I feel that would be overkill. Test suite runs for a long time. Personally I hate to run them locally and have my machine taken over for an hour.

If is passed HadoopQA in trunk and a few relevant tests in 0.94 were run (if applicable) I think that is good enough.

If it doesn't pass the 0.94 run we'll find out soon enough. If the test suite is stable that is :)
The gatekeeper are the release tests, not HadoopQA... IMHO.

Since we don't have Hadoop QA for 0.94 patches yet, does it make sense for
either contributor (patch owner) or the committer who plans to integrate
the patch to present test suite result before integration ?

There is subtle difference between 0.94 and trunk which may lead to
unexpected results.
