As you know, me & my team at HW along with folks at Y do a lot of manual testing along
with tests like GridMix/PigMix etc.

The basic idea is to test all features of HDFS, MapReduce, Streaming, Pipes etc. Similarly
for Pig, Hive, Oozie. I'm sure none of this is news to you.

Similarly we test for performance for all aspects of MapReduce.

The easiest way to get 'commitment' is to test and provide patches as necessary:
# mapreduce-dev@ helped pig-dev@ to do it for Pig
# Todd has done it for HBase, hdfs-dev@ will further help as necessary
# mapreduce-dev@ will soon help out for Hive, Oozie 

... etc.

I don't know about specific releases for all projects: 
# Pig will work 0.9.1 or 0.9.2 and beyond.
# HBase trunk works (refer to Todd's msg) - the actual release depends on HBase community
for a release.

Historically, we make a release of Hadoop Core and then work through related projects to make
necessary changes - mostly minor, sometime more. Thus, having an early release is important.
