Nice to you

Yes right.
The fact is that when mediawiki1.5 went out, as the upgrade was a bit tricky 
and mostly undocumented, we decided it could not be done automatically only 
and that it was safer to have the opportunity to be able to update 1.4 wikis 
to 1.5 without breaking current wikis in exploitation, hence the separate 

Now, I must admit that recent upgrade after 1.5 went much more smoothier, and 
the having versioned packages for each release is a real pain when it comes 
to correcting, closing and reporting bugs..

My current plan is to finish packaging mediawiki1.10, ask for removal of 
mediawiki1.9 and mediawiki1.7, and think about merging this again in a single 
unversionized package.

Hours beat, the scene moving right
When all on a sudden
Bam, bam, bam, a knocking pon the door
"Who is dat?", aksed Weston, feeling right
"Open up, it's the police, come on, open up"
"What address do you want?"
"Number 66, come on, open up"
Weston, feeling high, replied, "Yes, this is Street 66, step right in and
take some licks."
