Package: mediawiki
Severity: wishlist

>From http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/ImageMagick (and setup page):
> Image thumbnailing requires either ImageMagick or GD library.
> ImageMagick is recommended since it produces better quality thumbnails;

Thus the package dependencies should have imagemagick before php-gd
