Not a bug, closing.

You should not be installing mediawiki from wheezy in jessie.
You should be installing mediawiki from jessie/sid instead.

Downgrading is not supported (at least, David Prévot did not
add any code to support that), and will not be supported.
What *is* there is Breaks relationships, but due to the nature
of the stable security updates, these no longer trigger.
I’ve got no idea how to fix that except bumping the epoch for
the packages with the package split, but we cannot do that

Once you upgraded to a version of src:mediawiki with the
package split, you have to stay on that “branch”.

I admit that this ⇓ situation is a tad unfortunate:

                       Debian -- Package Search Results -- mediawiki (p1 of 10)

Package mediawiki

     * [48]squeeze (oldstable) (web): website engine for collaborative work
       1:1.15.5-2squeeze6: all
     * [49]wheezy (stable) (web): website engine for collaborative work
       1:1.19.15+dfsg-0+deb7u1 [security]: all
     * [50]jessie (testing) (web): website engine for collaborative work
       1:1.19.14+dfsg-1: all
     * [51]sid (unstable) (web): website engine for collaborative work
       1:1.19.15+dfsg-1: all

But in another two days, according to the PTS, mediawiki
from sid will migrate to testing, which you can then use.
(Or just install the package from sid right now.) Anyway,
this is just an intermediate state, and to be expected due
to the way Debian repositories work.
