please disregard the src:fusionforge part of this request
in its entirety. We discussed, in our IRC meeting, that a
removal of src:fusionforge from testing will be requested
by the lead developer soonish, so I will *still* want to
make a coordinated upload of all three packages, but with
src:fusionforge only targetting sid (although it *would*
really be nice if the FF support changes were accepted in
wheezy so users would not need to track that from sid, as
well; they are in src:mediawiki; src:mediawiki-extensions
is completely separate again, but a needed upload to sup‐
port mediawiki-1.19 in wheezy).

I’m sending this early to save on possible review work,
now that I managed *ahem* to look at MW 1.19.2.

So, if that agrees with you, I would like to upload to sid
with eventual target wheezy the following:

1) mediawiki-extensions 2.8 (unchanged from the last mail)

2) mediawiki 1.19.2-1 (the debdiff I already sent against
   1.19.1 rebased on top of 1.19.2, with suitable Breaks
   for old fusionforge-plugin-mediawiki binary packages)

And, in a coordinated upload, fusionforge to sid without
transition to wheezy (but, for now, still based on what
I had planned for that, to get the most urgent bugs fixed).

This will not affect Alioth negatively, as it runs a
slightly modified FusionForge install anyway, but having
working MW core and extension packages in wheezy would
