Hello. I saw now the new mediawiki:Cite section preview references message. It's very good thought to create it, but it looks exactly as page topic, and it's extremally confusing. I changed the code, using span, or '' italic, but it does not work, because the message is not wiki code parsed. Could you pleace make the text colored green, so the user will see it's not a regular topic? Thank you.
Right, no, I mean whenever it's deployed. Which will probably be next week (see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki_1.27/Roadmap), but it might turn out differently because the current version's deployment is delayed.
Thursday has barely started in the US :) The deployment which should bring this change to Wikipedias should begin in a few minutes: https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Deployments#deploycal-item-20160303T2000
