Description Bartosz Dziewoński 2012-11-13 20:08:50 UTC
Issues in legacy skins that could be easily fixed by killing them off.

See also changeset Ia6d73c2d, "Completely remove support for ancient skins".
Comment 1 Bartosz Dziewoński 2012-11-13 20:17:24 UTC
And by "legacy skins", I mean Nostalgia and Standard, the only two still using SkinLegacy and LegacyTemplate.
Comment 2 Marcin Cieślak 2012-11-13 20:20:14 UTC
Please be more specific, using "sucks" is not helpful. Just using a particular class as template is not a valid reason imho.
Comment 3 Bartosz Dziewoński 2012-11-13 20:22:31 UTC
This bug tracks all the issues in legacy skins. Or at least the ones I was able to find and pinpoint the problem - the four bugs currently here are caused by the lack of usage of standard navigation menus.
Comment 4 Bartosz Dziewoński 2012-11-13 20:23:32 UTC
Of course, it doesn't imply removing them; if anyone cares, they can go and fix them :)
Comment 5 James Forrester 2012-11-13 20:55:44 UTC
Leaving this where is is, but it's mostly a used-by-Wikimedia bug rather than a MediaWiki one.
Comment 6 Marcin Cieślak 2012-11-13 22:00:33 UTC
Well we have bug 27292 which does not seem to be overloaded with too many issues. All issues pointed by you are derivative of bug 37880, which is a single hook issue.
Comment 7 Bartosz Dziewoński 2013-04-02 17:01:34 UTC
This is invalid now that the legacy skins have been removed (Ia6d73c2d).
