[Mageia-dev] Mediawiki packaging changes

Hi there,

our current (and out of date) mediawiki package has the following layout:
mediawiki-minimal: a normal mediawiki installation without math support
mediawiki: a full installation including math support

As of mediawiki-1.18 upstream has removed the math part from the main 
project into an external extension.
So I could either:
use mediawiki itself as a meta package, just requiring mediawiki-minimal 
and (the to be packaged) mediawiki-math which should not break any 
exisiting installation or I could rename mediawiki-minimal to mediawiki 
and package mediawiki-math as an additional extension.
This would require people to install mediawiki-math manually after 

What is the preferred way here?
