Bug#603328: openjdk-6-jre-lib: unable to remove package

package: release.debian.org
severity: important
user: release.debian.org@packages.debian.org

Dear release team,

openjdk has a bug that I personally consider serious [0], but the
maintainer does not.  We can't seem to reach a consensus,
so I am requesting a release team determination.

The problem is that once openjdk-6-jre and openjdk-6-jre-lib are both
installed in sid/squeeze, neither package is removable.  openjdk-6-jre-lib
won't remove due to missing dependencies, and trying to remove
openjdk-6-jre results in installing additional packages!  I consider this
a serious issue since I'm now stuck with a bunch of packages that I
can't get rid of.

I would appreciate a ruling on whether this bug should be
release-critical for squeeze?  Thank you very much for your time.

Best wishes,
