Subject Re: Testing and jira tickets

To Ariel's point, I don't think we can expect all contributors to run all
utesss/dtests, especially when the patch spans multiple branches. On that
front, I, like Ariel and many others, typically create our own branch of
the patch and have executed the tests. I think this is a reasonable system,
if slightly burdensome, given our project and our needs/demands on it.

Whoever runs the test, is it reasonable to expect the results to become
available on the ticket? As the CI is moving to the Apache infrastructure,
that will be the final arbiter of " patch works or breaks things", but I
suspect executing the tests anywhere else will still be a very good
indicator of the viability of the patch.
