If the CIA were to hand you a improved-mediawiki binary, sure. You could
very well be suspicious about it. But we're talking about open source.
They would be providing the changes, which are to be reviewed, like any
other code, or perhaps even more, due to coming from the CIA.
Take into account that CIA and NSA need good software, too. So if they
add a backdoor, they would need to add it *and* at the same time make it
easy to protect from it, as they wouldn't want their own systems spied
by their own rootkit (and someone will end up forgetting to apply it).
Instead, contributing good fixes, make everything easier.
OTOH I encourage you to review selinux. That would make a great heading
