What is a dark feature?
Some of the features in Linchpin are not enabled by default and may be implemented as Dark Features.
The so-called "dark features" are simply system configuration options that are hidden from the normal administration menus. Only System Administrators can change dark features. Dark features give advanced users the possibility to enable or disable specific functionalities. Be careful with dark features as they may cause problems if misused since they will impact the entire instance.
