For those who are interested in an openjdk-6 update for stable, I did
prepare an update for some architectures at

     deb http://people.debian.org/~doko/archive stable/

Cool, it's based on OpenJDK 6b18.  However, we can't upload it as-is
because the version number is greater than the one in testing.

That's no longer the case, fwiw; testing has 6b18-1.8.2-4.

so please use the one from unstable, re-generate the control file on a
stable system, and re-upload.


Hello Matthias -

I'm able to build the version from unstable fine (it took 530 minutes...
:)  I want to make sure I understand what you mean by "re-generate the
control file on a stable system" - this simply means building the
current source package in a clean squeeze chroot, right?

before doing this: touch debian/rules&&  debian/rules debian/control.


Hello Matthias, Florian:

After tweaking the build-deps a bit to adjust for "lenny-ness," the package
builds in a clean i386 lenny chroot, and all of the resulting binary packages
install.  I have a couple questions:

First, I am assuming that I should set the version number to be
6b18-1.8.3-2+lenny1 and upload to stable-security with urgency=high.  Can you
confirm that this is the desired target?

2+lenny1 is newer than testing/unstable. please coordinate with -security and/or the stable release managers about the target.

Second, can I simply drop the dependency openjdk-6-jre-headless has on
ca-certificates-java?  This package doesn't exist in Debian lenny.

no, please apply the attached patch and regenerate the control file.
