Take a look at maintenance/tables.sql - this is the main schema file
for MediaWiki, and it is heavily annotated. Also take a look at
http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Database_layout, and I'd
particularly recommend
http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Image:Mediawiki-database-schema.png,
which is Nick Jenkin's excellent diagram.
