Volker_E added a comment to T178867: Unify and optimize SVG markup across Foundation products.

Insightful read on further optimization, in case we want to go crazier on SVG optimization and gzip/brotli preparation:

Volker_E updated subscribers of T180138: PHP DropdownInputWidget layout broken on Firefox 57.

@Esanders I've been only searching for the :not( [] ) combinations. As we write mostly backwards-compatible CSS code, this is the only one I'm aware of and could think of.
As you've probably seen yourself, when searching our codebase there's a third occasion at MobileFrontend/MinervaNeue with .captcha { input:not( [type='submit'] } . grunt-stylelint hasn't been updated to the latest version, therefore it didn't take effect in their current master. Have made @Jdlrobson & @bmansurov aware of the issue though.

@ovasileva In this task there's are still products that will see patches/need code review. Only the MinervaNeue part was resolved recently. StructuredDiscussions, MMV and the Style Guide are among those TBD.

@Capt_Swing The next PR is in, it brings the team member “cards” on par with the design template with minor amendments, the font-size for the member descriptions is a tad bigger and the color contrast of the descriptions is a bit higher – following our subtle colors which align to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

@Jdlrobson Sure, the boundaries between linting and minification are blurry in the case of SVG though and I'm not sure if a two tools approach is making our lives better. Can't speak to the rightful question about the integration test.

Volker_E added a comment to T179361: Move MobileFrontend/Minerva's svg_check.sh script into a reusable, separate library.

After re-thinking this option I'm not sure about the use case any more? SVG optimization is a little delicate and needs QA. Nevertheless from my work over at T178867 I assume that with reasonable defaults we can make SVGO work in 9 of 10 or our products without distorted images by default.
https://github.com/wikimedia/WikimediaUI-Style-Guide/pull/54 builts on top of grunt-svgmin and that could be exemplified as another default linter similar to our others.

:)
Happy for a wider discussion. Pointing from a README.md to a CONTRIBUTING.md wouldn't hurt me as much. As we also think it's fine to have such file as we also have an AUTHORS.txt and a LICENSE-MIT file. All of those are conventions from different angles and if we are pointing IMHO we won't loose non-GitHub users while we might gain effectiveness for a group on the most popular platform.

Reminder, that we've also got read/unread indicators in the top. How important is that difference with the additional notification badges that have to be interacted with before that dialog is presented to make the difference visually stronger?
Also, I'd like to put a word of caution about using a background-color with lower luminosity than Base80 with the secondary contents like user or date, which would fall below level AA accessibility then.

Volker_E added a comment to T177723: Align Notifications/Echo to WikimediaUI color palette.

I think it is not as clear that those elements are sub-elements while there is too much going (borders, backgrounds, box-shadows, double margins) on to visualize that parent>child idea.

Volker_E added a comment to T35787: screenreaders should have a way to skip InfoBoxes content..

Yes, agreed. If a technical solution is aimed for a skip link sounds like the most accurate. I'd be cautious though introducing a new skip link as it might interfere with learnt workflows for screenreader users.
As this task dates back to 2012, the landscape and also technical possibilities for affected users (especially navigation-wise) have changed when we look at our support of ARIA roles for example.
