Ok, I removed the line about JBoss. My proposed patch for the
release-notes is attached to this e-mail. If there are no further
objections, I'm going ahead and file the bug report this evening.

That's a good idea. However I think that the release-notes and
debian-devel-announce try to reach different audiences. The release
notes are aimed at casual users who would like to learn more about
Jessie whereas dda is for Debian contributors who already know their way
around. Both channels are important.
