Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-6037) Synchronize HiveConf with hive-default.xml.template and support show conf

Brock Noland commented on HIVE-6037:
------------------------------------

bq. Then would hive-default.xml get used when hive-site.xml doesn't exist?

I believe the HiveConf class  would then use hive-default.xml to load defaults and descriptions.

bq. Wow, that's a labor of love. Let's not abandon it, 

Agreed, I think we should go forward with this patch

bq. let's use it as a one-time fix to get all the parameter descriptions into HiveConf. Then
later we can figure out how to generate hive-default.xml.template from HiveConf for each new
release. However there's a problem with the default values, since HiveConf sets them so those
are the correct values.

AFAICT this patch moves the descriptions and defaults to hive-default.xml.template. I think
the next step is generating hive-default.xml from the template. Then the HiveConf class uses
hive-default.xml to load defaults and descriptions.
