In the template manager there is an mediwiki template. What is this template for? from a user point of view it's not easy to understood. 

Is it only an internal template file for the mediwiki export or can it be used from the user to do mediwiki styled writer files?

Would require to get insights why this template was added in first place.
Comment 2 Heiko Tietze 2020-05-13 18:19:10 UTC
Quite a lot around mediawiki likely relying on the template. We could drop everything but this should go through the ESC.
Comment 3 Heiko Tietze 2020-05-14 14:34:28 UTC
Mediawiki export is a bundled extension and if we remove the template we also have to pack the code and scripts into an external extension. Feel free to do so, it's not what the majority of users need. Could also live with keeping everything bundled, meaning WF.

I would love to see the whole extension in a separate git. I still think that bundling that extension makes sense, but I have no clue how to move that so that the build does not break.
