New quests[edit]

CSS linting – new approach (JF)

  • JF would like to replace CSSlint with more modern, flexible, customizable approach also regarding style hinting
    • Stylelint is based on PostCSS https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T130721 so PostCSS is a blocker
      • VE: We've been talking about possible usage of PostCSS in group's last meeting. Might be on the horizon.
      • JR: Minerva is currently not using PostCSS, but would generally be interested
      • VE interested in exploring the options here.

Switch in core from old forms to HTMLForms/OOUI Forms (JR) https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T100161

Study options and libraries for a more featureful LocalStorage API in core (AG) https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T121646 AG asking on way forward. Krinkle is not available today, JR will provide some comments here.
