Re: Mystery meat OpenJDK builds strike again

I wonder if the core technical issue is this: Debian stretch currently
packages OpenJDK 8 8u212-b01, when it should be packaging 8u212-b03 or
8u212-b04 (which one isn't clear, the release announcement
was for 8u212-b03, not for 8u212-b04 or 8u212-ga).

My understanding is that 8u212-b01 is a version identifier created by
the jdk8u project, and based on a quick check, it matches what Debian
identifies as its upstream sources (except for some stripping of system
library components).  But it's not the most current release.
