Olga Natkovich updated PIG-993:
-------------------------------

      Description: 
A Zebra table is stored as multiple sub tables each containing a set of columns 
called column group (CG). The user specifies how these columns are grouped 
while creating a table through the _storage hint_.

For some of the large tables, it might be necessary for users to remove a set 
of columns and retain the rest. This jira provides a way for users to delete an 
entire column group. 

The following comments will have more details on API and the semantics.
