Actually the mediawiki rpm is NOT ready. The SPEC file is not in 
subversion and the RPMs should not have been released. It was a work in 
progress (so the packages should have at least been marked as test).

That's also why it was never updated or anything and have not been tested 
by me. I fixed it now, the mediawiki package will be removed from the 
repository in my next update.

Sorry for that.
