Re: Support for TIMESTAMP_NANOS in parquet-cpp

hi Roman,

For nanosecond Arrow timestamps, the relevant code path for this is here:


You'll also have to modify some code in parquet/types.*,
parquet/schema.*, parquet/arrow/schema.cc to handle the additional
metadata. If you aren't dealing with Arrow at all, then it should be
sufficient just to modify the handling of the logical types metadata
in parquet/types.*.

So there is a significant complication that I didn't think about yet:
we aren't handling the new logical types union in parquet-cpp yet, so
there's quite a lot of work beyond just dealing with the nanosecond
metadata. I am also not sure what are the implications for backwards
compatibility and haven't had time to look in detail at what needs to
be done since the new metadata structure was added to the Thrift
