thanks for spotting the runtime dependency on openjdk-7-jre. It is
somewhat strange that it exists though.

However please cancel the upload because the removal of the alternative
java6-runtime dependency is not correct. It is still provided by OpenJDK
8 and the non-free Oracle packages and it also simplifies backports. I
will take care of the upload afterwards.
