No, I’ve got no resources to follow this myself.

If a given Mediawiki version does not work with PostgreSQL
it’s not a valid candidate for me. Plain and simple. If the
other maintainers disagree, I’ll have to use a local package
instead of using the one in stock Debian and contributing to
it. But I wish there were some way we could change this problem
upstream, i.e. make them see supporting a real DB (someone even
suggested Horracle!) important.

I’d not upload something to Debian I couldn’t use.
