Description Jon 2014-08-12 23:37:36 UTC
MediaWiki UI has a concept of a mw-ui-vform but it is badly documented and it is not clear when, where and how to use it.

In the login form where it is used it also introduces mw-ui-checkbox-label, mw-ui-label, mw-ui-vform-field which are not documented anywhere in the style guide.

These classes should also be standalone without nesting and also have guidance on when they should be used.

mw-ui-checkbox-label also conflicts with the newly introduced mw-ui-checkbox so should probably be killed.

This is something that should be cleaned up, but it is not major ("Major loss of function in an important area.", https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Bugzilla/Fields#Severity),

This is beyond the scope of a documentation bug.  It should be discussed and addressed separately.  Note even the new code (e.g. mw-ui-checkbox) still uses nesting in key places, albeit not in the same way.

Yes.  As discussed earlier, mw-ui-checkbox-label does not exist in the LESS (or CSS) and can simply be dropped.

Not sure how it got assigned major that was not intentional :)
