Short summary: I hope to have a release candidate out this weekend or by Monday.
I have setup unit tests runs for hive 0.12 branch -
There were some unit test failures, caused by test issues. The fixes
for those should be in by tomorrow ( HIVE-5419, HIVE-5426).
There are other blocker issues for which fix should be committed by
tomorrow - HIVE-5394, HIVE-5401, HIVE-5364.
There is a jira marked as blocker that does not have a fix yet -
HIVE-5235 . But that is not a regression, so I think we can have an RC
without that if it does not get fixed in next day or two.
There is also another jira HIVE-5087 that might get resolved only by Friday.
