                 Key: HIVE-1082
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-1082
             Project: Hadoop Hive
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Venky Iyer


I think we should make sure that the table can either be created anew with the specified properties,
or it already exists with those properties, where 'properties' includes all metadata except
timestamps. Anything else is an error. This makes sense if you think of a table as the name
 + its schema, instead of the name alone.
