> In the Kafka Consumer's {{AbstractPartitionDiscoverer}}, for partition discovery, already
discovered partitions are tracked with the following map:
> {code}
> Map<String, Integer> topicsToLargestDiscoveredPartitionId
> {code}
> Simply put, on each discovery attempt's metadata fetch, all partition ids of a given
topic that are smaller than the largest seen id will be ignored and not assigned. This approach
lies on the assumption that fetched partition ids of a single topic are always strictly contiguous
starting from 0.
> This assumption may be too naive, in that partitions which were temporarily unavailable
at the time of a discovery would be shadowed by available partitions with larger ids, and
from then on would be left unassigned.
> We should redesign how the {{AbstractPartitionDiscoverer}} tracks discovered partitions
by not relying on the contiguity assumption, and also add test cases for non-contiguous fetched
partition ids.
