Package: mediawiki
Version: 1.4.10-1
Severity: wishlist

I have just install your package. It works great if you do that:


and not forgot to remove the cache of your browser if you did not want
to download the application/x-httpd-php files.

so it would be great to add a sumerize of the previous webpage in the
Debian Readme

My point is that I put user in front of the wiki and the first time
they want to edit a page they did not know about the wiki syntax.
Their reflex were to clic on the <Editing help> link at the bottom of
the edit page but their is nothing to look at.

the default behaviour whould be to obtain the wiki syntax here.

what do you think about this ?
