let me step back a little and explain what we want to achieve. We have patch pushed to

I read provided documentation, but I do not have sufficient background to understand it
1. if I opted to run these tests locally, what are expected hw specification? I mean
devel build is already more than laptop can handle. If this has enabled all translations,
I'd have to take a pto to run it. So is this even possible to be ran on laptop with
only 12G ram?
2. Since I probably should be coding instead of waiting for build on irresponsible laptop
(which it is even for devel build), would it be possible to have jenkins build, which
prepares rpms as described above without need to deploy them to some repo, but allowing to
download them instead?

Adding to Matin's explaination: He posted https://gerrit.ovirt.org/65793
and would like it be tested. It would be wonderful if you can add a job
that makes it possible to build el7 rpms from that patch, to bet
executed by QE.
So yes, I'd appreciate if you can add such a -manual job for building
ovirt-engine. I'm not sure I know "which job" precisely is that, though.
Can you tell me which are the options?
