I'm not sure why the dependency would be changed - it seems that scripts are coming directly from SVN and nothing special is required to run
but compilation. Thus certain script tests won't require anything special too. Am I mistaken?
Also, I think whatever tests might be automated with a relatively low effort should be automated. Manual tests aren't that efficient nor error proof. E.g. in the current common trunk bin/hadoop version produces a lot of 'unknown' version tags which might've been caught by a routinely executed test.
Shall we start adding tests for scripts right now? Why not - this day isn't worst than any consequent one
