Hi David,

In Ubuntu, we've found that composer has an undeclared test dependency on
xz-utils.  While the package's tests pass for us at build time, and on three
of five architectures where we run autopkgtests, on two architectures it
seems that xz-utils happens to not be installed in the test environment,
causing a test failure:

  Time: 15.32 seconds, Memory: 20.00Mb

  There was 1 failure:

  1) Composer\Test\Downloader\XzDownloaderTest::testErrorMessages
  Failed asserting that 'Failed to execute tar -xJf '/tmp/composer-test-736556ecbc93ac9f6/XzDownloaderTest.php' -C '/tmp/composer-test-623556ecbc93ac3f5/composer/a72d1367'

  tar (child): xz: Cannot exec: No such file or directory
  tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
  tar: Child returned status 2
  tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
  ' contains "File format not recognized".


See, e.g.


Of course, xz-utils is Build-Essential, so many environments will already
have xz-utils installed.  But it's optional, so for complete correctness
this should be declared as a dependency.

The attached trivial patch addresses this.

Thanks for considering,
