The package maintainer has decided not to build mediawiki119 for F18, since this is meant for el5/el6 only.

Instead, I have requested mediawiki119-HTTP302Found to be blocked from F*.

Comment 2 Patrick Uiterwijk 2012-09-10 17:34:15 EDT
After reconsideration, the mediawiki119 package will come to Fedora 18, and this package will come to.

Thanks for filing this bug report, and I hope this was the hoped outcome.

mediawiki119 is in F18 updates-testing.
Comment 4 Vedran Miletić 2012-10-06 09:11:21 EDT
Why wasn't mediawiki119 renamed to mediawiki in F18 and replaced original outdated 1.16.5 package with numerous known security issues?
Comment 5 Patrick Uiterwijk 2012-10-10 02:05:05 EDT
mediawiki119 is a different package with different maintainers.
The mediawiki119 package was so that you can safely run a yum update on mediawiki, and you will not get into problems because of differences in configuration files and so on.
Comment 6 Vedran Miletić 2012-10-10 03:06:19 EDT
So, the plan is to continue with such a naming for F19 and onwards? Or will eventually old and unmaintained MediaWiki issues get removed?
Comment 7 Parag AN(पराग) 2012-12-10 23:42:36 EST
I suppose this can be closed as packages are already in repositories.
