           Summary: Core skins should initialise and include like other
                    skins/extensions do
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: Skin and page rendering
    Classification: Unclassified
   Mobile Platform: ---

Currently the core skins are set up such that they have a skinname.php file and
a skinname directory and are automatically included as options if the
skinname.php file is found in the main directory, but this setup doesn't scale.

Skins shouldn't have these loose files. All of the skin files should be in the
skin's directory, and all skins should be included and initialised much like
extensions are. Many non-core skins already do this.

Two issues with setting this up:
* There would need to be some sort of default to account for the transition on
existing wikis.
* There would need to be a selection on install for which found skins will be
made available, probably much the same as how found extensions can be selected
to be enabled.
