There has been no release for mediawiki 1.16, which this package represents.
Also, this package should definitely be dead.package'd.
We could maybe add a provides and obsoletes to mediawiki119 so that updates silently move to this version (in EPEL-6 branch only though)?
Comment 3 Vincent Danen 2013-04-22 15:18:48 EDT
Right, that's because 1.16 is dead upstream.

Removing this package and making the latest version provide/obsolete it would definitely be better.  We can't know for 100% whether or not this version is affected, but there's a pretty good chance it is.
Comment 4 Vincent Danen 2013-04-30 16:57:47 EDT
Adding parent bug 958303.  Please use this new bodhi update url when correcting
these flaws:

Comment 5 Patrick Uiterwijk 2013-05-08 15:50:05 EDT
mediawiki116 has been dead.package'd, and provides/obsoletes has been added to mediawiki (for f17, f18, f19) and the mediawiki119 (for el6).
