I'm disappointed to see that scilab was rejected without referring to the SRU
exception for OpenJDK-11 in bionic.  We all knew that this move past the bionic
release would be painful, and it doesn't make sense to backport single patches
to an earlier scilab release to support a new java version.

openjfx is tightly coupled with an openjdk version, so if we update that one, we
also should update openjfx.  We also have a standing SRU exception for OpenJDK.

My understanding of a SRU exception is that you don't have to mention it for
every SRU.  If the SRU team wants a reminder to SRU exceptions, it should be
documented in the SRU process.
