Bug#656815: pu: package mediawiki/1:1.15.5-2squeeze3

Package: release.debian.org
Severity: important
User: release.debian.org@packages.debian.org
Usertags: pu

(severity important because of the regression)

Testing has shown that the fix for CVE-2011-4360 introduces a regression:
in some situations, an error is returned instead of a login prompt. Moreover,
the Debian package seems not to disclose information as described by the CVE.

For this reason I would like to get a fix into this point release rather
than waiting for the next. I realise the window technically closes this weekend
and I'm sorry for the late notice.

Debdiff attached, it's a one line change that just disables the patch in the
quilt series file.
