This package creates a /etc/webapps/mediawiki/ directory, it would make sense to change the default configuration directory from $IP/LocalSettings.php (see /usr/share/webapps/mediawiki/includes/WebStart.php:114) to /etc/webapps/mediawiki/LocalSettings.php (especially useful for systems where /usr is mounted read-only).
This would also require to make /etc/webapps/mediawiki/ writable by http by default, or alternatively ship a writable LocalSettings.php requiring /usr/share/webapps/mediawiki/includes/NoLocalSettings.php

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
- Install mediawiki.
- Either run the automated setup, or provide an existing LocalSettings.php
- See it being only imported from /usr/share/webapps/mediawiki/LocalSettings.php
This task depends upon
