Support dark skins (tracking)


A variety of blocks of content in MediaWiki's UI do not support skins that use a dark content area. They either use an explicit dark text color that does not inherit light colors used by the skin or use a light background without specifying the text color and as a result when the dark skin uses a light body text it becomes light text on a light background.

While it is reasonable to expect that a dark skin will add extra styling to make content look event cleaner in it, the default should remain readable without customization.

This is especially important given that this is not a fixed set of content, new parts of the UI are introduced with this same issue, as a result there's no way a skin can simply patch in fixes for all of MW, new things would simply break.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
