It actually fixes that one.

Right, but I didn’t know (at that point) it boiled down to adding
a new package.

>If people were relying on nodejs and anything depending on it being

I also wasn’t realising it waited on nodejs, and by the point I
talked to the JS maintainers, it looked like things would be fixed

Misinformation on my side. I didn’t realise the full impact of what
should have been a simple JS package. I also was struggling trying to
balance between FusionForge, pkg-mediawiki and a sometimes helpful,
sometimes stressful MediaWiki upstream at the same time (besides the
other dayjob stuff), so I admit not digging as deep as possible as
early as I could have done.

The alternative would be removing src:mediawiki-extensions from
wheezy, which would be a very bad thing from a user’s PoV as I
already explained, or (worse) keeping a broken version (hence,
the src:mediawiki upload adding Breaks for such versions).

To my defence, I have been running those versions for a while
now, and they look good (otherwise I’d not have asked to have
them unblocked).

No, the only way I've seen them sold is for $40 with a free OpenBSD CD.
