Please document hive.stats.fetch.partition.stats in hive-default.xml.template, then I'll add it to the wiki for release 0.13.
If you want to be thorough, you can also make these changes to hive-default.xml.template:
- change the default value of hive.stats.key.prefix.max.length from 200 to 150
- document 8 config properties that have been added since release 0.12:
These changes were found by comparing files in branch 0.12 & trunk (as of January 13th). I've learned my lesson: from now on I'll check stats patches for new configs.
