thanks for the report. We actually haven't forked
openjdk-8-jre-headless in Devuan, so it would be probably better to
forward the report upstream, i.e., to

Subject: openjdk-8-jre-headless: OpenJDK JRE Headless depends on libcups
Date: Mon, 14 Jan 2019 19:16:44 +0100

Package: openjdk-8-jre-headless
Version: 8u181-b13-2~deb9u1
Severity: serious

As per, it seems OpenJDK JRE binaries dependency on libcups is useless. This is especially worrying for the headless version of it.

This is especially worrying as the libcups2 package depends on libsystemd0, making headless Java binaries enforcing its presence in the end.
