Looks good to me, minus the mention of JBoss (it never worked and was
never used according to its popcon, so it's not worth mentioning).
I don't know if we can still change the release notes, but if it doesn't
work I think we could post a "Bits from the Java Team" message on
debian-devel-announce and give more news about the team (new members,
current packaging efforts, Java 8 transition, etc).
