Hi Ryan,

With so many Java packages and so few developers on the Debian Java
team, it is difficult to keep everything up to date or to determine
which old versions are affecting users.  So thank you for bringing this

As Andreas suggests, please file a severity wishlist bug against the
package to help us keep track.  And if you have patches, you can attach
them to the bug.

Once buster is released, I'm willing to take a look at updating the
package.  Since the package is arch:all, it shouldn't be a problem to
use the updated package from unstable/testing on buster (assuming the
newer version doesn't pull in new dependencies not present in buster).
