That's not as useful in practice as it may seem, as some regression 
tests will/may fail anyway, so you'll always have a 'no' in that column.

for an example and details.

Date and/or hg version tag wouldn't necessarily be sufficient to 
identify a specific cumulative set of changes in a forest accurately. I 
think that would be much too specific, in any case.

I think it could be worth reporting if the results differed from those 
obtained on Ubuntu.

The interesting question there is if that's sufficiently different from 
Ubuntu, which is already on the page. There are many superficially 
different, yet still quite alike (for the purpose of building OpenJDK) 
Linux distributions.

I assume that the best place to discuss the contents of and improvements 
to OpenJDK packages on Debian GNU/Linux is the respective Debian 
packaging mailing list - I assume that's still debian-java :

OpenJFX is an OpenJDK Project, so - sure.
