When will index AMs such as `hnsw` and `ivfflat` be added to vector indexes for external use to fully enable end-to-end support for vector indexes?

Hi
I understand from the following documentation that our ybdb does not support distributed vector storage. May I ask what is the plan for this feature?

One of them is mentioned:
“Note that the results from a ybdummyann index won’t actually be sorted by their distance from the given query vector as the DocDB side of vector indexing has not been implemented. This is made clear by the following client warning when such an index is created. In the future, when we fully have end-to-end support of vector indexing we will add index AM’s such as hnsw and ivfflat meant for external usage.”

Hi @ZhenNan2016

Why make another issue when you can ask in the github issue?

Issues being worked on for the near term are mentioned in the roadmap GitHub - yugabyte/yugabyte-db: YugabyteDB - the cloud native distributed SQL database for mission-critical applications.
