Description of problem:
When there are packages with conflicts, dnf shows them in green. That contradicts any common perception of the green color (means success).

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

How reproducible: Run a transaction with conflict

Actual results:
"Skipping packages with conflicts" section lists green packages.

Expected results:
"Skipping packages with conflicts" section lists packages in other color, possibly red or magenta.

Additional info:
See the attached screenshot.

Comment 1 Daniel Mach 2020-03-25 10:36:15 UTC
I removed the misleading green color:
PR: https://github.com/rpm-software-management/dnf/pull/1609

We'll probably have to rework using the colors,
because as you suggested, colors are frequently associated with success/failure
rather than any actions.
