Indeed, I totally fucked up this one. Apparently, there was a
“wheezy” branch in svn which I was supposed to use but did not.

The changes that sled in were:
• the “| php5-mysqlnd” dependency (#689758)
• bz29635.patch (fixes cases where database upgrades fail)
  ‣ https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=29635
• two hunks of fix_invalid_xhtml.patch (ensures 2 out of 3
  places that need the change have all <img/> tags always have
  an alt="…" attribute; the third one was not yet committed:
  https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=40889 has
  a link to an upstream commit for that)

Apparently, because the latter was WIP/incomplete, I had
not added debian/changelog entries, which led to my later
oversight. I should have used svn log.

If there is demand, I will upload a -2 reverting all of
these changes, although I consider the bz29635.patch
important enough for inclusion for PostgreSQL users.
If that is requested, please say so. (Apparently, the -1
upload made it into testing in the meantime.)

I learned from this to never assume debian/changelog is
up to date in a “trunk” and will try to not repeat this
mistake. Sorry.
