Package: findbugs
Version: 2.0.3+repack-1
Severity: wishlist

Dear Java maintainers,

I would like to get some other virtual machines installed on my system
(e.g., the one from Oracle or have only openjdk-8---or openjdk-9 if I'm
feeling adventurous) and it would be super nice to have one of those fulfill
the dependencies that default-jre provides.

I know that (in part) the effect can be achieved via the alternative system,
but I think that having the alternative specified serves more than one purpose:

* From a minimalistic POV, it allows the user to have only one runtime
  installed.
* From a version requirement POV, having java5-runtime (or 6 or 7...) states
  clearly what is the minimum runtime version that the program requires.

There are probably many other reasons to relax the strict requirement of
default-jre (which, BTW, is a moving target), but those are the first ones
that come to my mind.

Since this bug report is quite "adventurous", I can perfectly understand it
if you think that a wontfix is suitable. :)


Thanks for your amazing work maintaining the Java packages,
