Description cronolio 2017-02-28 17:58:41 UTC
The current version is 1.28.0
Comment 1 Michael 'veremitz' Everitt 2017-07-12 01:14:08 UTC
v1.28.2 is out.
Comment 2 Simon Bühler 2017-11-13 13:33:38 UTC
1.29.1 is current please bump!
Comment 3 Jonas Stein gentoo-dev 2017-11-13 16:40:15 UTC
Thank you for the bump request. 
You can help the maintainer with further information:
Does a simple bump [1] work on your system? 
Chances are high, because a first look on the bump revealed only small changes.


@Maintainer Is there a problem with the bump? How can others help you?
There was no reaction in this request for a while. Do you still maintain the ebuild?
Comment 4 nic 2018-01-09 04:32:36 UTC
This is a relative simple version bump from 1.27.3, yes. At some point it was determined that this tweak was needed with 1.28.0, I have since lost the origin of why/whom.

 -       imagemagick? ( || ( media-gfx/imagemagick media gfx/graphicsmagick[imagemagick] ) )
 +       imagemagick? ( virtual/imagemagick-tools )

Upstream did change the minimum mysql dependency with 1.30.0; rebuild omits the RDEPEND check. More info

1.30.0 is stable
1.28.0 is obsolete
1.27.4 is legacy LTS
1.27.3 is missing security patches.

So yes, I could see an argument for bumping to the latest 1.27.x and 1.30.x packages.

Hope this helps.

Release notes:
Comment 6 Viktor Levin 2018-06-13 21:14:37 UTC
MediaWiki 1.31 released.
Comment 7 Viktor Levin 2018-07-20 20:25:12 UTC

MediaWiki 1.31 requires PHP 7.0.0 or later. Although HHVM 3.18.5 or later is supported, it is generally advised to use PHP 7.0.0 or later for long term support.

Created attachment 551666 [details]
MediaWiki 1.31.1 2018-09-20

This package clearly lacks an active maintainer.
Comment 9 Miroslav Šulc gentoo-dev 2018-10-23 16:38:01 UTC
i have bumped mediawiki to version 1.31.1. i have used the ebuild from the attachment with some minor modifications. if you encounter an error with the bump, open a new bug and you can blame me :-) (add me to cc)
