Description of problem:
The battery icon has insufficient contrast between the "full" and "empty" sections of the icon. This makes it difficult to determine at a glance what the battery status of the system is. Although mousing over the icon will create a text popup, the icon should be easily readable.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Bring a laptop running on battery power into a non-optimal viewing environment.
2. View the battery status icon and attempt to assess charge status.
Must squint and examine the icon closely or mouse over to obtain popup before battery status can be assessed.
The status should have been immediately obvious based on the "fullness" of the icon.
Fixed in F7.
