 According to

To change all existing users' skin settings, use the userOptions.php
script <https://mail.google.com/wiki/Manual:Maintenance_scripts>. The syntax
to use on the command line would be:

$ php userOptions.php
<https://mail.google.com/wiki/Manual:UserOptions.php> skin --old <old
skin name> --new <new skin name>


$ php userOptions.php skin --old "monobook" --new "modern"

But since ShikiWiki is currently working in MediaWiki 1.16 r71885, I would
keep it as an option for people to choose.  At the point in time that it
fails, we can decide to rebase it on the Vector code, decommission it, or
leave it for a upgrade project for any interested party.

According to the Sugar Labs Graphic identity,

"The logo can sit either on a white or black background, and the color
combinations change order based on the background--against a white
background the outline color around "sugar" is always lighter than the fill
color, while against a black background the outline color is darker than the
fill color."

The gray letters over the Vector gray background might not look right.
Perhaps we can create a fade to gray border, like the Vector tab treatment,
to make the logo image fit in better with Vector.
