      Description

      We need to update the HCatalog version that we support for Sqoop builds to be 0.13.0 to support all the Hive Datatypes with HCatalog

      Since the hcatalog packages have moved from org.apache.hcatalog to org.apache.hive.hcatalog, this will be a backward compatibility breaking change. Hive had deprecated the packages in 0.11 and has removed them in 0.13.1. Also, the enhancements for hive datatype parity is only available with the new packages.

      While this would mean that we will not be able to build with older hive versions, the metastore client is backward compatible, so newer Sqoop will still be able to access older hive (but we have to provide the Hive 0.13 libraries to Hive on the client node)
