Changing the colour of text in terminals is tricky, because you never know what the background colour is, so the text may be unreadable or just look ugly. This is especially an issue with lighter backgrounds.
@arp242 Thank you for reporting! We would appreciate screenshots of low-readability of gh output in various terminal color configurations. (If the data is sensitive, you could run the same command against an open source repo.)
Git has excellent configurability regarding disabling/forcing/changing default colors— perhaps we should allow some configurability as well.
