[Pkg-mediawiki-devel] Bug#416523: mediawiki1.9: upgrade process assumes MySQL

Package: mediawiki1.9
Version: 1.9.3-1
Severity: normal

When upgrading from mediawiki1.7 to 1.9, the postinst script assumes that the
database is kept in MySQL, and fails to either dump the DB or upgrade it.
As I understand it, PostgreSQL upgrades are not supported well upstream, but
the Debian package should handle this case more gracefully.
