Package: mediawiki
Version: 1:1.19.14+dfsg-0+deb7u1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear Maintainer,

Updating from 1:1.19.5-1+deb7u1 to 1:1.19.14+dfsg-0+deb7u1 on Debian Wheezy, leads to the following errors in the apache

[Mon Mar 31 11:12:45 2014] [error] [client] PHP Warning:  require(/var/lib/mediawiki/includes/libs/HttpStatus.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /usr/share/mediawiki/includes/AutoLoader.php on line 1009
[Mon Mar 31 11:12:45 2014] [error] [client] PHP Fatal error:  require(): Failed opening required '/var/lib/mediawiki/includes/libs/HttpStatus.php' (include_path='/var/lib/mediawiki:/var/lib/mediawiki/includes:/var/lib/mediawiki/languages:/var/lib/mediawiki:/var/lib/mediawiki/includes:/var/lib/mediawiki/languages:.:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear') in /usr/share/mediawiki/includes/AutoLoader.php on line 1009

Contrary to what https://packages.debian.org/wheezy/all/mediawiki/filelist
is listing.

Previous package:

root at pluto:~# dpkg -L mediawiki|grep HttpStatus

Reverting to 1:1.19.5-1+deb7u1 fixes this issue.

I'm using the LDAP auth package as well but at first sight this doesn't matter.
