NOTICE: Mediawiki update plan [Input needed]

This was originally announced almost a year ago, but I thought I had a
better solution which took me longer to get right because well I was
doing it all wrong. However I think I have fixed all those issues and
am ready to get reviews.


I need initial testing and feedback on these packages. They are NOT
1:1 drop in replacements with the current mediawiki RPM.

1) mediawiki-math is removed. A person who installed mediawiki got it
automatically and only if you only installed mediawiki-nomath did you
not get it.
2) I have removed the sharedpath patch as implemented before with a
smaller one that not as functional meets upstreams view.
3) The packages are parallel installable. I have tested this on
minimal build systems and it seems to work well. I need more eyes
though because I might have foo'd something
4) I need help on figuring out the best way to deal with current
mediawiki in the repository.
