Yes we could just remove the link and add a file like README.mediawiki or any 
other name in which we just explain where the user can find the confile...

Indeed, that would propably be enought to close the two other bug for a small

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly,
nor standeth in the way of sinners,
nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
- Psalm 1:1
