             Summary: Add support for storing column comments in ColumnSchema
                 Key: KUDU-1711
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KUDU-1711
             Project: Kudu
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: impala
    Affects Versions: 1.0.1
            Reporter: Dimitris Tsirogiannis
            Priority: Minor

Currently, there is no way to persist column comments for Kudu tables unless we 
store them in HMS. We should be able to store column comments in Kudu through 
the ColumnSchema class. 
Example of using column comments in a CREATE TABLE statement:
impala>create table foo (a int primary key comment 'this is column a') 
distribute by hash (a) into 4 buckets stored as kudu;
