----------------------------------

             Summary: Users of hive should be able to specify skipTrash when dropping tables.
                 Key: HIVE-7100
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-7100
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 0.13.0
            Reporter: Ravi Prakash


Users of our clusters are often running up against their quota limits because of Hive tables.
When they drop tables, they have to then manually delete the files from HDFS using skipTrash.
This is cumbersome and unnecessary. We should enable users to skipTrash directly when dropping
tables.
We should also be able to provide this functionality without polluting SQL syntax.
