Use new helpNotice icon on WMDE extensions
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story Points


Since OOUI v0.28.2 there's a new help icon to use free-standing and frame-less. @Volker_E already added a patch for this for the RevisionsSlider and we might think of other extensions.

[mediawiki/extensions/RevisionSlider@master] Replace 'help' by 'helpNotice' icon

@Charlie_WMDE If the above screenshot looks fine to you just poke me and I will merge the patch.

For context, the 'help' icon change from circled to non-circled in the general icon unification and refinement task T177432, which aimed at the help icons usage in toolbars and was a last-minute change to get it through. It was rightfully criticized in T191014#4229540 in places other than toolbars. Now we're providing two icons, 'helpNotice' should improve the experience in cases like RevisionSlider.

thiemowmde moved this task from Incoming to Done on the Revision-Slider board.

The icon was in a circle before, see So the fact it became a stray "?" is technically a regression, and the patch technically a bugfix. I went ahead and merged it. Can easily be rolled back in case WMDE-Design doesn't agree.
