Subject Re: test suite
Date Fri, 07 Mar 2008 00:45:46 GMT
I would add that we have an issue open for speeding up the test  
suite, HBASE-410. Probably the most promising idea for speeding up  
the test suite is converting some of the tests that don't need to be  
integration tests into something more like true unit tests, or specs  
for that matter. Mock objects used to test hyper-focused bits of the  
system would be absolutely ideal, and has the advantage of being  
quite fast.

If you wanted to make some early contributions, anything in this area  
would be a FANTASTIC place to put them.
