Backport to Trusty

Asked by Jason Abernathy on 2015-07-18

Hello, thanks for packaging OpenJDK for Ubuntu and Debian! I was just wondering if there were any plans to backport OpenJDK 8 to Ubuntu Trusty 14.04.

If not, are there technical limitations which are preventing it?
Thanks!

There is already a request for this in progress, see Bug #1368094

As workaround there are PPAs with openjdk-8 for trusty
see https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas?name_filter=openjdk-8
