There's interest in the mediawiki upstream development community to
to get involved in the mediawiki Debian maintenance, but that's not
going to happen in the short term.

OTOH the archive in the archive is totally outdated und unsupported
upstream, so we should remove it for now. When maintenance gets
revived it can easily reenter the archive.
