That's a good idea - but someone have to package currently supported releases, and nobody (debian removed the mediawiki package, as I wrote it in description) is doing it. Upstream is certainly interested in this, but they aren't going to do it by themselves in the near future. [1] MediaWiki 1.19 is not supported since May 2015 and is not getting secuirty updates. It is more dangerous to leave unsupported, not maintained, (possibly-vulnerable) packages, IMO.
