Hindi MainPage should use Template Styles (migrate all MediaWiki:Mobile.css and MediaWiki:MobileMainPage.css styles to templates)
Open, Stalled, Needs TriagePublic

Description

In T190101 (Change-Id: If4f89825a20fa224c9708a6f36e5a392e5d7a6cb) we introduced MFMobileMainPageCss to help adapt the Hindi main page for a mobile campaign.

Now TemplateStyles is deployed we should look to migrate away from this bespoke configuration variable, to a more long term solution - using TemplateStyles.

Every day we don't do this we are adding confusion to others by making it look like MFMobileMainPageCss is the way to do this and increase the maintenance burden by providing an opportunity for potential adoption.

Acceptance criteria

  • All styles inside MediaWiki:MobileMainPage.css have been migrated to corresponding templates
  • .page-Main_Page #content { is loaded site wide either via MediaWiki:Common.css or a render blocking MediaWiki:Mobile.css

Sign off steps

  • Remove MFMobileMainPageCss from MobileFrontend (or create task to do so)
  • Cleanup MFMobileMainPageCss related configuration.

Is there anything that Community-Relations-Support can do to help? Is this a request for us?

@Qgil Do we have a strategy for helping communities to adopt TemplateStyles? Ideally, WMF would not be editing the wiki pages e.g. templates, but editors would be doing that with our assistance as needed. How do we identify somebody who can help?

Not sure how to move forward with this until we work out a way to help migrate styles to templates. We also are blocked on it being available (T133410). Maybe we can work this out as part of the roll out of TemplateStyles?
