[Pkg-mediawiki-devel] Bug#396396: mediawiki1.7: Upgrade from version 1.4 removes old installation prematurely.

Package: mediawiki1.7
Version: 1.7.1-3
Severity: normal

When upgrading from version 1.4 to version 1.7, I am notified that the upgrade has to be 
done manually, which is OK, but it does not mention that the existing installation will be 
removed when continuing, and there is no option presented to abort the installation.

This leads to a long down-time until I have manually upgraded the installation.
