Reattaching to make sure this is not a flaky test failure :(

> Currently I see the {{getVersion}} implementation in the metastore is returning a hard-coded
"3.0". It would be good to return the real version of the metastore server using {{HiveversionInfo}}
so that clients can take certain actions based on metastore server versions.
> Possible use-cases are:
> 1. Client A can make use of new features introduced in given Metastore version else stick
to the base functionality.
> 2. This version number  can be used to do a version handshake between client and server
in the future to improve our cross-version compatibity story.
