Description of problem:
There are two problems with the task colors.
1) The default background colors are light and very nice. However,
the task group labels are also colored in those colors... and that is
a problem since this is foreground text. Using a light background
color for foreground text is completely unreadable and I can't see
2) The tasks are displayed in the calendar. I haven't been able to
figure out why that is yet - imho they shouldn't be, but maybe there's
some hidden purpose which I haven't discovered yet. Anyway, the bug is
that the task colors in the calendar remain the same even after the
task colors for different groups in the tasks section are changed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See Summary
3) When changing the task colors, the tasks are not properly
recolered, but only a rectangle of a fixed size over the tasks is
colored with the new color. The rest is recolored after unchecking the
task group and checking it again... or after opening another evolution
component and switching to tasks again.
1) is fixed - I like it
2: I still don't see what the tasks are doing along with the calendar,
but anyway. Now the tasks colors in the calendar update in sync with
the separate tasks section, but only the first time. Updating a
second time only updates the tasks in the tasks section. Furthermore
changing colors more than once per session does not save the changes.
Upon restarting only the first change was recorded.
3) Is still broken as described. To be clear, when the tasks being
recolored are not on screen (for example you need to scroll down),
everything works as it should. However when they are on-screen at the
moment when you recolor them a rectangle of a certain size is
recolored but not the entire area covered by the tasks.
Too many things going on here, and
those bugs are so ancient.
Closing, will file bugs I care about upstream.
