I can't follow that. There is not a single bug report about that in the Debian
tracker. Looking at the Debian Java mailing list, there is not a single
posting from your side. And I can't remember that being discussed on the ML
either. Also not on the distro-pkg-dev ML. Same thing for the Ubuntu bug
tracker. So which channels are you using?

I raised questions about the versioning on the jdk ML's multiple times. Most of
those were ignored, or saw the versioning as being correct. I brought up the
configuration issues at this year OpenJDK committers workshop, but it was voted
down because other topics seemed more pressing to discuss.
