Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Should not

be a symlink to


I'm certainly fumbling about, but (almost) all the other files in this directory
are symlinks to the code.

And the mediawiki page wiki page appears when when I replace the file with that symlink
rather than a blank page.  This error appears in /var/log/apache/error.log
PHP Fatal error:  require_once(): Failed opening required '/var/lib/mediawiki/WIKINAME/extensions/Math/Math.php' 
(include_path='.:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear') in /etc/mediawiki-extensions/extensions-available/Math.php on line 2
