upgrade with security patches alone would be A Good Thing, and requires minimal testing (upgrade to 4.7 is a bit more work and will prolly need module & theme work).

Summary though: none of the interested parties have yet had time.

Wiki upgrade may not be able to go too far as the most up to date versions of MediaWiki rely on PHP5 which isn't the easiest of things to get onto Debian Stable (sysadmins: beat me up now for talking cobblers).

Lockdown to registered users is pretty easy - 1 text file config option. I *can* do it (have done it before), but would rather it were done by a *real* sysadmin.

Locked to new updates.
