Create a Beta Feature to enable form refresh
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Jared has requested that there be a beta feature that enables the new form styling (e.g. sets $wgUseMediaWikiUIEverywhere to be true) to gather feedback from volunteers and make these changes more visible.

VectorBeta seems the obvious place to put this beta feature.

Use an updated look and feel for basic controls on the site, initially not all controls will be covered, by enabling this you can help give feedback on the new look as well as identify places where things aren't looking quite right.

Does this go live on mw.org on thursday?

There's no patch for it yet. Prateek said he'd get a patch up today in which case I'll get merged. In case this happens can you coordinate with James F / Greg about deploying to wikis and if they are okay with that? It would be part of VectorBeta.

If you're going to start working on something, can you assign it to yourself (and check with the person it's currently assigned to)?
