Deb package asks for a java8-runtime-headless instead of openjdk-8-jre-headless

(Github issue)

Why the .deb package asks for a java8-runtime-headless dependency instead of openjdk-8-jre-headless where you do not need to use ppa to use?
Avoid using ppa packages please change this
use openjdk-8-jre-headless as dependency instead of java8-runtime-headless that only exists in a ppa

Packages providing java8-runtime-headless

Standard Java or Java compatible Runtime (headless)
OpenJDK Java runtime, using Hotspot JIT (headless)

why not use the package that is in the official debian repository and its derivatives? choosing a ppa is a serious mistake that should never happen!

I just use open jdk and it works fine too.

Dependency of default-jre will be better, will not it?

It would be better to just use packages from the official Debian repository, using ppa is not unreliable
