node-es6-promise builds fine on stretch right now.
However, if this was not really a bug in node-es6-promise, it would be
better (instead of just closing it) if we could reassign to the proper
package and also send "affects 835581 src:node-es6-promise" to
email@example.com. This way, this bug will still be shown in the web page
for node-es6-promise, as it made the package to FTBFS.
