Description

Stars in core currently use color scheme highlight colors. This doesn't extend well to outside of core, leading to inconsistencies on WordPress.org. Let's unify all of the star rating colors by making them yellow. I proposed #e6b800 for the WordPress.org website, but I know @hugobaeta is working on a style guide and might have a better option, so I'd like his input before going forward with this.

Update on Start and Bar for ratings in plugins. We ended up settling on a single new yellow that works well on most scenarios: #FABE00

Small update to the patch, colors are now derived from a source yellow (#FFB900). Also deleted the reference on _admin.scss for color schemes per @helen request

Star ratings: Use a yellow color across the board. Keying these to color schemes originally turned out to be weird.
