> When writing meta information of a state in savepoints, we currently write both the state
serializer as well as the state serializer's configuration snapshot.
> Writing both is actually redundant, as most of the time they have identical information.
>  Moreover, the fact that we use Java serialization to write the serializer and rely on
it to be re-readable on the restore run, already poses problems for serializers such as the
{{AvroSerializer}} (see discussion in FLINK-9202) to perform even a compatible upgrade.
> The proposal here is to leave only the config snapshot as meta information, and use that
as the single source of truth of information about the schema of serialized state.
>  The config snapshot should be treated as a factory (or provided to a factory) to re-create
serializers capable of reading old, serialized state.
