I agree, we need to work on automating testing for most of scenarios. My idea was to create
a checklist and then think about automation.
My few thoughts while compiling the list.

1. We need to create more API samples to demonstrate API capabilities and those samples can
help us automate testing. (current samples need updates)
2. Creating API documentation for every capability can help us to improve API and to add required
integration tests. I found swagger [1] to be very use for REST API documentation. We can find
similar options for Thrift and Java API.

Infact that is the way most of the apache projects do.
