Hi Michael,

Thanks for your QA work.

> Package: php-guzzle-stream
> Version: 1.1.0-3
> Severity: serious

I’m not able to reproduce that issue in pbuilder, where can I read more
information about your setup (what is goto-cc about)?

The symlink is not in the upstream tarball, it’s just added (via a quilt
patch) during the build to run the testsuite. I don’t mind creating the
symlink an other way (e.g., in d/rules) but would prefer to understand the
root issue that need fixing first.
