I plan to EOL mediawiki for the EPEL releases for EL-4,5,6 due to
packaging newer ones using mediawiki114,mediawiki115, mediawiki116.

There are several ways I can do this:

1) change mediawiki114 to replace mediawiki. Pros would allow people
to keep a package on their system. COns most likely will break due to
linking and changes in package.

2) put out a final mediawiki package with a "Please dont use." in
README and %description.

3) just remove from system.

I need input and help on getting this done.
