Subject Re: Maintenance releases for SPARK-23852?
Date Wed, 11 Apr 2018 19:47:58 GMT
I think a 1.8.3 Parquet release makes sense for the 2.3.x releases of Spark.

To be clear though, this only affects Spark when reading data written by
Impala, right? Or does Parquet CPP also produce data like this?
