Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-7100) Users of hive should be able to specify skipTrash when dropping tables.

Lefty Leverenz commented on HIVE-7100:

> The RB UI is very difficult to use.

Agreed, the RB confuses me frequently so I'm not the best person to help you with it.  That
said, your review request still isn't available except for the summary -- no diff appears.

On the right side of the summary page, there's an area for Information and Reviewers.  Under
Reviewers, Groups should say "hive".  Here's a recent example:

But I don't know how you do that.  I'll poke around in the UI and see if I can figure it out.

> 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.
