Now that we went around changing hcatalog package to be inside hive with
HIVE-4869, one of the remaining sore points is that hcatalog standardizes on 4 spaces for its indenting style, and hive standardizes on 2 spaces for its indenting style. This causes headaches for those of us who have to edit parts of both.
We've thus far not bothered changing them because we didn't want to lose modification history for hcatalog, but due to the svn mv we had to do, we've already lost that battle. So, we might as well go ahead and do this.
I'm also creating this as a separate patch because I don't want to expand the scope of
HIVE-4869 which is complex enough. If we agree to do this, we should do this soon.
