Package: java-package
Version: 0.51~exp1
Severity: important


the packages generated from jre-7u7-linux-x64.tar.gz depend on
libav{codec,format}52 which are not available in Debian wheezy/sid.
When building, the build process spews gazillions of "do this to avoid
unnecessary depends on libfoo", and indeed, /usr/bin/java does not
seem to dynamically link to libav{codec,format}52.

I guess there is something wrong. Please advise.

   * Updated the package description and debian/README.Debian:
     - no longer recommend openjdk-6
     - mention the compatibility with Java 8

     JRE package
   * Changed the short description of the generate packages to match
     the official name
