I guess the following Jiras has been included in Improvement list by
mistake, they are not in 1.9 scope:
[DRILL-4309] - Make this option
[DRILL-4864] - Add ANSI format for date/time functions
[DRILL-4865] - Add ANSI format for date/time functions
I guess the confusion was that they had Fix Version indicated as 1.9, it
was intended version, in reality they are still in progress / under review.
I have updated their Fix version to Future to avoid the confusion. Could
you please exclude these three Jiras from Improvement list?
