    @aljoscha this is the currently the case for any startup mode. Any 
partition discovered after the initial batch fetch is considered a new 
partition due to Kafka scale outs, and is therefore read from the record 
horizon. Startup modes apply only to existing partitions.


> FlinkKafkaConsumer should support to use timestamp to set up start offset

>     Currently "auto.offset.reset" is used to initialize the start offset of 
> FlinkKafkaConsumer, and the value should be earliest/latest/none. This method 
> can only let the job comsume the beginning or the most recent data, but can 
> not specify the specific offset of Kafka began to consume. 
>     So, there should be a configuration item (such as 
> "flink.source.start.time" and the format is "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss") that 
> allows user to configure the initial offset of Kafka. The action of 
> "flink.source.start.time" is as follows:
> 1) job start from checkpoint / savepoint
>   a> offset of partition can be restored from checkpoint/savepoint,  
> "flink.source.start.time" will be ignored.
>   b> there's no checkpoint/savepoint for the partition (For example, this 
> partition is newly increased), the "flink.kafka.start.time" will be used to 
> initialize the offset of the partition    
> 2) job has no checkpoint / savepoint, the "flink.source.start.time" is used 
> to initialize the offset of the kafka
>   a> the "flink.source.start.time" is valid, use it to set the offset of kafka
>   b> the "flink.source.start.time" is out-of-range, the same as it does 
> currently with no initial offset, get kafka's current offset and start reading
