Package: mediawiki
Version: 1:1.12.0-2lenny1
Severity: wishlist

There is currently no documentation for how to populate, or redirect the
help pages (which are empty by default).  I believe the way to redirect
the links currently is to edit
/usr/share/mediawiki/languages/messages/Messages*.php and redirect the
Help:xyz links to the corresponding

Obviously editing a non-config file like this is a bit hacky...
