HBase 1.2.5 is the fifth maintenance release in the HBase 1.2 line,
continuing on

Critical fixes include:

daughters in some circumstances
* HBASE-17044 Fix merge failed before creating merged region leaves
meta inconsistent
* HBASE-17206 FSHLog may roll a new writer successfully with unflushed entries

spread of regions for small tables.

Please try out this candidate and vote +1/-1 on whether we should
release these artifacts as HBase 1.2.5.

The VOTE will remain open for atleast 72 hours. Given sufficient votes
I would like to close it on March 17th, 2017.
