The rule of separation here is that it has separate upstream.

This also means that the conversion utilities do not require
anything from the MediaWiki packages themselves (like the
extensions do), and that they’re only useful for a small
subset of MediaWiki users (those that indeed use MySQL instead
of a database). Which confirms that.

In case you *do* need something to be changed in the core
mediawiki* packages in Debian, of course this is the right
place to go. (And maybe one of the other readers will show
interest in those packages – just I don’t.)
