it is not blocked, it is work in progress. Emmanuel did decide to change the
packaging, and did decide to drop support for most Debian architectures.
Dropping support for Debian architectures will automatically block this
package later on. I'm still in progress looking at his commits and applying
these to a source package which builds on all architectures currently
supported by openjdk-7.
Afaics, fixing build failures with openjdk-8 as the default is not blocked.

debian-java is not the place to speculate about NEW processing.
