> With HIVE-3976, the maximum precision is set to 65, and maximum scale is to 30. After
discussing with several folks in the community, it's determined that 38 as a maximum for both
precision and scale are probably sufficient, in addition to the potential performance boost
that might become possible to some implementation.
> This task is to make such a change. The change is expected to be trivial, but it may
impact many test cases. The reason for a separate JIRA is that patch in HIVE-3976 is already
in a good shape. Rather than destabilizing a bigger patch, a dedicate patch will facilitates
both reviews.
> The wiki document will be updated shortly.
