I can't follow that.  There is not a single bug report about that in the Debian
tracker.   Looking at the Debian Java mailing list, there is not a single
posting from your side.  And I can't remember that being discussed on the ML
either.  Also not on the distro-pkg-dev ML.  Same thing for the Ubuntu bug
tracker.  So which channels are you using?

I raised questions about the versioning on the jdk ML's multiple times.  Most of
those were ignored, or saw the versioning as being correct.  I brought up the
configuration issues at this year OpenJDK committers workshop, but it was voted
down because other topics seemed more pressing to discuss.
