> HDFS allows for users to be added to a "supergroup" (identified by the "dfs.permissions.superusergroup"
key in hdfs-site.xml). Users in this group are allowed to modify HDFS contents regardless
of the path's ogw permissions.
> However, Hive's StorageBasedAuthProvider disallows such a superuser from adding partitions
to any table that doesn't explicitly grant write permissions to said superuser. This causes
the odd scenario where the superuser writes data to a partition-directory (under the table's
path), but can't register the appropriate partition.
> I have a patch that brings the Metastore's behaviour in line with what the HDFS allows.
