let me step back a little and explain what we want to achieve. We have patch pushed to gerrit, not merged to master. We want to build rpms from it and pass it (via no official way) to some tester so that he can test it.

I read provided documentation, but I do not have sufficient background to understand it fully.

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?

PTO isn't needed if your tester doesn't need all locales + permutations
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?
You can already explore the CI jenkins jobs on how to do it or have a look at this jenkins job http://jenkins-dev.eng.lab.tlv.redhat.com/job/ovirt-engine-create-rpms/
