Hey David,

I'm just about to update the website and send out the notification for 5.5.3 in a few hours (as soon as I get some time at work). About the section, I assume you are talking about the CHANGES.txt file and I should've done that as part of the release process but I think I missed the 5x, and master branches. I've added the 5.5.3 section to both, and moved your entry to a new 5.5.4 section on the 5x branch.
5.5.4 section addition on branch_5_5 is a part of the post-release process, so I'll remember to move this to the correct section when I add that.

Minutes ago I went and committed https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-7417 to master, branch_6x, branch_5x, and branch_5_5.  While on both the v5 branches, I noticed the last 5.5.x was specifically 5.5.2 so I went and added this under a new 5.5.3.   That is now committed.  Then the realization hits me that you're doing a 5.5.3 release and it just passed a vote  So I guess I should change those entries to be 5.5.4 and probably also add a blank 5.5.3 section so it's clear there were not additions in 5.5.3 for Lucene?  BTW I think this bug is "minor" IMO.

Okay.  BTW SOLR-9290 isn't "Just" high indexing rates, but it's for those using SSL too -- correct me if I'm wrong.  We don't want to raise alarm bells too loudly :-)

With SOLR-9290 fixed, I think it calls for a bug fix release as it impacts all users with high indexing rates. 

If someone else wants to work on the release, I am fine with it else, I'll be happy to be the RM and cut an RC a week from now.
