Description Mark Belanger 2005-02-17 19:28:41 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
This is a trivial change, but the RHN Alert icon displays a green color when it's checking status and blue when the the users software is current.  A more logical color choice would be:

 red:    software is not current
 yellow: software status is being checked
 green:  software is current

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable RHN Notification Tool
2. Check for updates

I think the red/green color combination is a poor choice since the most common
form of color blindness is red/green.

Comment 2 Mark Belanger 2005-03-07 18:12:27 UTC
True, but that's the common convention for non-colorblind people and the
software already addresses colorblindness with it's use of status iconography as
shown here:
