Upstream said 1.19 would be an LTS release, so we chose
it for wheezy; I (opinion of other maintainers) do *not*
plan to upgrade it until some not-too-much time before the
freeze, in the hopes that upstream will designate another
LTS version to use for jessie-as-stable by then.

From what I can see, none of the maintainers of the mw-
related packages is (able to?) invest lots of time into
it. Keeping the same (roughly) version in stable and te-
sting reduces maintenance load, I think.


PS: If you want to help out… I could really use some
    feedback on #719208 (and need to remember what
    Helmut suggested before I fell ill… should have
    written that down immediately back then…)
