Do you think the 11.0.3+1 package in stretch is affected by serious
issues compared to the GA release that should be addressed quickly?

That may happen later this week if no other update is uploaded in
unstable and the release team approves the transition (that's a big "if"
because testing is currently in deep freeze, and the previous minor
update 11.0.2 broke a ton of packages due to javadoc changes). A likely
outcome is that Debian 10 gets released with OpenJDK 11.0.3+1 and
receives a 11.0.4 update after the release.

I've just noticed the new *-ga tags added recently to the OpenJDK 8/11
repositories, that's a very welcome change. That will allow us to write
debian/watch files detecting the release tags.
