Hello Matthias, Florian:

After tweaking the build-deps a bit to adjust for "lenny-ness," the package
builds in a clean i386 lenny chroot, and all of the resulting binary packages
install.  I have a couple questions:

First, I am assuming that I should set the version number to be
6b18-1.8.3-2+lenny1 and upload to stable-security with urgency=high.  Can you
confirm that this is the desired target?

Second, can I simply drop the dependency openjdk-6-jre-headless has on
ca-certificates-java?  This package doesn't exist in Debian lenny.

Thank you for your guidance.
