call it Hive-SQL instead of HiveQL ?
I see that the hive community intends to make hive SQL compliant and
is on that path. Just like other databases, it has some extensions to
SQL, and there are some standard features it does not support.

SQL is also one of the strong selling points of hive. But using the
term HiveQL, I think conveys this idea very poorly.
I propose deprecating use of the term HiveQL and using the term
Hive-SQL or just SQL depending on the context, in hive documentation.

What does the hive community think ?

Thanks,
Thejas
