      Description

      Hive should have ability to atomically add and drop partitions. This way admins can change partitions atomically without breaking the running jobs. It allows admin to merge several partitions into one.
      Essentially, we would like to have an api- add_drop_partitions(String db, String tbl_name, List<Partition> addParts, List<List<String>> dropParts, boolean deleteData);
      This jira covers changes required for metastore and thrift.
