Lefty Leverenz commented on HIVE-13248:
---------------------------------------

Doc note:  The wiki needs to be updated (with version information) for date_add, date_sub,
and to_date.

* [Hive Operators and UDFs -- Date Functions | https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/Hive/LanguageManual+UDF#LanguageManualUDF-DateFunctions]

Added a TODOC2.2 label.

> Some of the original "date" related functions return string values rather than Date values,
because they were created before the Date type existed in Hive. We can try to change these
to return Date in the 2.x line.
> Date values should be implicitly convertible to String.
