Extremely low-level information disclosure of various configuration files are not typically considered vulnerabilities for FLOSS code such as MediaWiki, as said configuration files are publicly-available in various repositories. This is both known and intentional. Additionally, such files can often be deleted once MediaWiki has been installed and configured. A web server running MediaWiki can also be configured not to serve such files.
