Hi Ondřej,

I had a quick look at the fix. It’s useless: phpunit already depend on
php-cli, php-xml, and php-mbstring.


#953777 is about the lack of tight versioning dependency between PHP

The test log shows a mix of php-7.3 and php-7.4 extensions installed:
php7.3-mbstring php7.3-sqlite3 php7.3-xml php7.4-cli php7.4-common
php7.4-json (the autopkgtest is about *partial* upgrade for migrations).


You may argue that it’s a flow in autopkgtest, but anyway, you can’t fix
it by adding useless dependencies in a consumer (using php extensions)
package. You may want to (at least temporarily, since it defeat the main
purpose of having various PHP versions co-installable) tighten the
dependencies from php-7.4 (e.g, Breaks: php7.3-mbstring, php-7.3-xml,
etc.), or try and get an exception from the release team.
