Wikimedia wikis have needed to go into read-only mode or go offline(!) for
an upgrade since like MediaWiki 1.5 or something. I skimmed
<https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki_1.19> and didn't see any crazy
database schema changes or anything. Am I missing something?
Not that I can see, there's no major schema changes this go
round so I can't see any reason we'd need to go offline/readonly.
