> restore inheritPerms functionality and extend it to ACID
> --------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: HIVE-18689
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-18689
>             Project: Hive
>          Issue Type: Bug
>            Reporter: Sergey Shelukhin
>            Assignee: Sergey Shelukhin
>            Priority: Major
> This functionality was removed for no clear reason (if it doesn't apply to 
> some use case it can just be disabled).
> It's still in use; in fact, it should be extended to ACID table 
> subdirectories.
> This patch restores the functionality with some cleanup (to not access config 
> everywhere, mostly), disables it by default, and extends it to ACID tables.
> There's a coming HDFS feature that will automatically inherit permissions. 
> When that is shipped in a non-beta version and stabilized a bit, we can 
> remove this functionality... however I dunno if that is good for other 
> potential use cases, like non-HDFS file systems that do have a concept of a 
> directory (Isilon?)
