19:27 haarg trs: the current colors used could use some revision as well i think
21:51 kentnl I don't think colours are clear enough, especially when people exist with colourblindness
21:51 kentnl like the fact I had to read the HTML source to understand what a colour means == bad
21:52 kentnl I'd rather one of three options: a small image adjacent the dist name indicating its stability , alt text on the distname that indicates data about the stability grade, or a combination of both
21:53 kentnl ( the last is preferred, because the icon may not have an obvious meaning, so alt-text should describe the meaning for people who are learning it, and then people can identify using icons subsequently )

22:03 haarg more clarity would definitely be good, but i like the colorization as an easily visible reference
22:04 haarg usually the most important thing is just "is this the latest", which is pretty easily visible
22:05 haarg but the existing colors were just what i threw together initially, hoping someone could improve on it
