[Pkg-mediawiki-devel] Bug#495952: mediawiki-math should not be a dependency

Package: mediawiki
Version: 1:1.7
Severity: wishlist

I have installed mediawiki on a production server for internal use within my
organization, and have no need of the mediawiki-math extension.  However,
since it is a hard dependency of this package, mediawiki pulled in a large
number of latex packages I have no use for.  I propose making the mediawiki
metapackage simply recommend mediawiki-math.
