I've merged Bartosz's patch
for rolling out the boxes to all forms, not just vforms.
He used the same colors as the vform styles. It seems to me that the
success and error boxes might be better with a little more color contrast.
You can test on Beta
by editing your preferences (success), going to Special:UserLogin while
logged in (warning), and entering the wrong password for login (error).
These changes have been backported to the current MediaWiki release, and
they're visible on production now, including mobile versions of the
examples Matt pointed to above.
For a bit more background: IIRC Bartosz generated the palette here based on
the error message style, which Munaf designed in vform for the login and
signup redesign. I agree we should make sure the contrast is enough to meet
accessibility guidelines, but the nicest thing about the new styles are
that it is more cohesive than previous, and we should make sure to retain
