Hi Santiago,

just tested the package a little and it works for me but I just noticed
that the EOL date of OpenJDK 6 should be 2016-06-26. Now I wonder what
kind of workflow we should use for updating debian-security-support in
Wheezy. Shall we always update security-support-ended.deb7 on the master
branch and then merge and cherry-pick everything relevant into a wheezy
branch or always use the master branch? I think the only thing that
might change over time is security-support-ended.deb7, so perhaps
working on a separate branch won't interfere with the security-team, if
they intend to implement a new feature? By the way the tag for the
latest upload is missing.
