Description of problem:
In RC1 a lot of widgets have a totally different color than in TC4. For example:
* the warning bar (bottom of the screen) used to be orange, now it blue. It's quite hard to notice it now, especially with the Workstation product (a lot of blue graphics)
* item selection in custom part used to have a blue background, now it has transparent background -> you can't see which partition is selected
* the password strength meter used to be red, now it orange
* maybe something I haven't noticed
I guess the change is somehow related to added branding and was not intentional. The biggest issue is I believe the custom partitioning, it's quite difficult to work with it when you don't see which partition is selected. The second biggest issue is probably the bottom bar being quite invisible, so people might be quite confused (e.g. waiting for installation to finish, but anaconda is actually waiting for them, they just haven't noticed).
Some additional info from Vratislav:
<vpodzime> kparal: append the information that the product CSS is not applied as an update, but replacement for the original anaconda's CSS (might be a lorax issue)
<vpodzime> kparal: it's either a lorax issue that it replaces the anaconda's CSS with the product's one or productization issue because they provide uncomplete CSS or a wrong path for their CSS
Reporting against fedora-productimg-workstation, because I don't know which component is the best fit, but this also applies to server branding.

Proposing for a freeze exception, or potentially even a blocker, if we deem the custom partitioning issue as too important.
For what it's worth, I'm -1 blocker on this.

Disregard that. I started typing that, re-read the bit about the custom partitioning and changed my mind. I then CCed the people needed to fix it and forgot to remove my -1 blocker comment before hitting save.
OK, so the problem here is that lorax is replacing the anaconda-gtk.css with the custom one contained in the fedora-productimg-* packages. The truly correct behavior would be for them to somehow make their way to /run/install/product/anaconda-gtk.css where anaconda would automatically merge them instead of replacing it.
However, this is difficult to accomplish at this late stage, so our workaround will be to manually merge the CSS contents in the fedora-productimg-* packages so that the replacement results in the correct behavior. I'm working on this right now.
Fixes are building in Koji right now.
fedora-productimg-workstation-21-8.fc21 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 21.
fedora-productimg-server-21-8.fc21 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 21.
fedora-productimg-cloud-21-8.fc21 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 21.
(Three separate updates, since the packages conflict and bodhi doesn't let them go together. I marked the workstation one as closing this bug, as it's the most visible, but the server one is obviously pretty important too -- probably that's where the angry messages about custom partitioning will be clustered....)
Discussed in 2014-12-01 blocker review meeting. Accepted as an FE: the combination of broken elements here leads to a significantly degraded user experience, and is a clear regression from all previous tested composes.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 21 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing fedora-productimg-workstation-21-8.fc21'
as soon as you are able to.

Fix for this looks good in RC2.

Re-opening for Rawhide, this is not addressed there yet.
This was Final FE for F21, propose Alpha FE for F22, it's pretty ugly and makes custom part a bit confusing. Should it be against anaconda for F22, to merge CSS instead of replacing it?
Ah. "The truly correct behavior would be for them to somehow make their way to /run/install/product/anaconda-gtk.css where anaconda would automatically merge them instead of replacing it."

> so, no.
I think #1170800 supplants this for rawhide.
