I don’t think having an intermediate 1.18 would be wise if we want
to ship 1.19 – rather, I think it would have the reverse effect.

With the work by Roland Mas on FusionForge side, I’m fully prepared
to test the combination of mediawiki=1:1.19* and mediawiki-math from
experimental, once the former’s uploaded to experimental and the latter
passes NEW queue.

Not from FF side, but please spare us testing with 1.18 and then
1.19, time is precious enough already, and it’s easier concentrating
on things that really matter.

Works for me. The dep is on mediawiki-math, for now.
