[pkg-php-pear] Bug#836815: php-php-gettext (after rename) doesn't ship the actual code

Package: php-php-gettext
Version: 1.0.11-3

When php-gettext was renamed to php-php-gettext, the actual code files
were left as part of php-gettext:

$ dpkg -L php-gettext

However, php-gettext is described as a "transitional dummy package"
which "can be safely removed".

I suspect the files should have been moved to php-php-gettext too.
However, if that is going to happen, do they need to still live at the
old path, or should php-gettext ship symlinks?
