Certainly a bug and a policy violation, but as 1.7.1-3 is the only version
of this package in the archive now and there is no mediawiki1.7 in sarge,
that makes it a non-RC upgrade issue.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
