Subject [GitHub] avro pull request #197: AVRO-2001 Adding support for doc attribute

    AVRO-2001 Adding support for doc attribute

    The Avro schema and protocol specification(http://avro.apache.org/docs/current/spec.html)
allows for an optional attribute "doc" defined as, "a JSON string describing this field for
users." Users should be able to include a doc with each field for "records" (http://avro.apache.org/docs/current/spec.html#N10085)
and "enums" (http://avro.apache.org/docs/current/spec.html#N10186).
    This doc attribute should be stripped when transforming into "Parsing Canonical Form"
    Currently, the Ruby Avro library (https://github.com/apache/avro/tree/master/lang/ruby)
does not support doc. It is supported in other languages libraries, for example PHP (https://github.com/apache/avro/blob/master/lang/php/lib/avro/schema.php#L46).
