During the initial MediaWiki setup, if diffutils is not installed it shows:
GNU diff3 text comparison utility not found. You can ignore this for now, but might run into edit conflicts more frequently.

git is used to show git hashes if an extension is running off of a git checkout. Without it, the initial setup shows:
Git version control software not found. You can ignore this for now. Note Special:Version will not display commit hashes.

Please add diffutils to depends and git to optdepends.
The PKGBUILD also has a commented out optdepend "php-apcu". Please uncomment it.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any
mediawiki 1.34.2-2

Steps to reproduce:
Start the initial setup in a fresh installation without without LocalSettings.php.
