      Description

      Currently hive-server and hive-metastore both create the hive user. We should probably move it to the hive package to follow the suit of all other packages that we've got. The only reason not to do that would be to treat hive as more of a client-side package (IOW, we don't want it to create the user by default, since we expect people to use it just as Pig or Mahout without ever running it as a service).

      Please let me know what do you think.

        Yes, hive is a client, just like pig.
        I expect hive to be installed in places other than where hive-server or hive-metastore is installed.
