I'm running into an issue with Hive when it's doing small Parquet file
merges. It looks like it's been fixed by this patch: https://github.com/
apache/hive/commit/d68630b6ed25884a76030a9073cd864032ab85c2 (the issue was
a null pointer exception at that line).
Unfortunately, the bug is blocking a key piece of our production
infrastructure and was not included in the 2.3.2 release. Do we know when
the next release of Hive will be, and if that commit will make it in?
Happy to provide any more information if needed.
