We are migrating from ES 6.8 to ES 7.17 and encountered a bug during indexing for some complex shapes. It turns out the issue is a tessellation bug in Lucene that has been fixed in Lucene 9.0 (see [LUCENE-9580] Tessellator failure for a certain polygon - ASF JIRA)
Since we cannot migrate to ES 8.0 yet (that requires a full reindexing that cannot be done yet), I would like to have the Lucene bugfix backported into a future ES 7.17.x release.
What is the path to follow ? I can submit a PR to Lucene so that a next 8.11.y release of Lucene (the branch used on ES 7.17) includes this patch. Is there a chance this potential new Lucene release will be intergrated into a future ES 7.17.x release ?
