stack commented on HDFS-5852:
-----------------------------

[~wheat9] Thanks for the input.  Not sure how to react.  That color is subjective I 'know'
instinctively and this subjectivity is recognized and is at the root of the original question
asked by me out on the mailing list where I solicit if I am the only one having the reaction
that, "these colors seem way to close to the signature HWX colors".   It seemed to me like
a pretty basic question and it shouldn't take color theory making an answer.

While you might ask that we avoid 'political correctness', as you call it, we do have an obligation
to keep our work conflict-free, even though it require that we operate in areas in which we
are inexpert: design or 'branding', to name two pertinent domains here.

Let me close this issue as LATER.  Here is why:

My original question gleaned one direct answer only if I am making a proper accounting and
though the judgement was passed on a low-fidelity copy, a PNG screen shot, the opinion was
similar to what I had posited, that the banner color is 'darker' (I'll not infer any more
than this).  My survey out on the mailing list has been distorted so I do not expect any more
opinions to come in via that channel.  Asking the question here a few more times has not elicited
any additional opinions.  I'm not in the game of committing patches unless clean agreement.
 That is lacking here.

Let me also close this issue because this arena is a minefield whether it is engineers making
design choices (though I like the orange too and counting my vote, it has 4x+1) but also,
this is a minefield in that we do not yet seem up to talking about the issue in a civil manner.

Finally I'm closing this issue because I don't care that much about the color, whether or
which, not enough to drive further along this contrib.  I was just wondering...

This issue has been good in that the provenance of the chosen color has been surfaced and
can be put under the nose of anyone who might have my reaction in the future.  I also now
know who I need to consult when color stumped going forward.

Thanks all for your contribs here.

> The HDFS UI colors are too close to HWX green.
> Here is a patch that steers clear of vendor colors.
> I made it a blocker thinking this something we'd want to fix before we release apache
hadoop 2.3.0.
