Subject Re: why does have explicit line breaks?
Date Sat, 14 Jan 2017 01:31:45 GMT
Those line breaks are for the generated template file
(conf/hive-default.xml.template), which formats configuration parameters
and their descriptions appropriately for hive-site.xml files.

For example, *hive.input.format* doesn't have explicit line breaks so its
long description is all on one line:

Rather than removing "\n" in parameter descriptions, we should add them
where needed.
