Comment (by hugobaeta):

 Replying to [comment:9 afercia]:
 > Please consider color contrast ratio should be at least 4.5:1. In the
 accessibility team we discussed a while ago the contrast issue, noticed
 there are several other places in the admin that need some love (most
 notably: primary buttons, TinyMCE buttons, login screen links and "orange"
 things) but decided to postpone for now. So it's not a priority at the
 moment but since you're working on primary buttons, maybe it would be a
 nice opportunity :)

 My proposed change is already an improvement in contrast.

 The current primary buttons (blue) in the admin have a contrast ratio of
 The ones I propose have a contrast ratio of 3.04

 They are not the recommended ratio... I know. But if this already feels
 like a big change, imagine if we went all out? The easy solution here is
 to reverse the styles: Hover (the bottom one) becomes the normal state of
 the button. That one has a contrast ratio (my version) of 5.25.

 what do y'all think?
