Cool!  From the naming it smells like a good precondition for GATK4
which should be also packaged (rather sooner than later if I understood

Sounds promising.  Again, thanks a lot.

I admit my hope to get more testers from this list is limited.  (I
explicitly added Vincent who is also in Uploaders but as far as I
remember is not reading this list very regularly.)  Thus I'd be in
favour of uploading at least those preconditions to unstable.  Since no
package in unstable depends from these we can not really break anything.
In general I also think that uploading to unstable even for picard-tools
is fine (may be after testng bug is fixed) and use normal Debian QA
tools as well as rdepends as "testers" in addition to potential readers
here.  We are in the middle of a release cycle and there is sufficient
time to fix issues now.

Ahhh, will we see another Java migration before buster will be frozen?

I guess there is no other chance since it depends from the version
there, right?

So green flag from my side without testing anything since I do not even
have a better idea how to test ... 

Kind regards
