On a clean GNOME install from the Mageia-6-rc-x86_64-DVD ISO, after installing GNOME Tweak Tool, Tweak Tool shows a blank for the current GTK+ theme selection. When using the drop-drown list to select a GTL+ theme, the only option available is "High Contrast". If you select that, the theme changes correctly, but then there is no way to get back to the default Adwaita theme.
Installing the adwaita-gtk2-theme package fixes this. Should this get installed by default?
IIRC, we want to enforce Adwaita for GTK+2 on GNOME, so it should be installed by default. Assigning to the gnome@ maintainer group for confirmation and/or fix.

Gnome maintainers or users, any comment to confirm whether it's a bug or wanted?
If it's a bug it would be good to add a note about this in the Errata.
No clue. gnome-tweak-tools should NOT depend on anything gtk+2.x. So maybe the bug is elsewhere. Maybe quick fix is to ensure it is installed via meta-task as a require seems wrong.
Checked source, gnome-tweak-tool really only shows themes with GTK+2.x and GTK+3.x support. Ugh
Olav, the issue is not the tweak-tool, but a default M6 Gnome (only) install does not include the adwaita-gtk2-theme package. All (by default) installed gtk+2 applications look horrible, f.e. Gimp. It's embarrasing :p
With the theme installed they look good :)
rpmsrate, meta-task or task-gnome could take care of it, I guess.
For Gnome Live, Martin has already manually included the adwaita-gtk2, but the CI and netinstall are still affected.
Ok, then the solution should be a Recommends or Require on lib*gtk+2.x

gnome without adwaita-gtk2-theme
No, gnome needs the adwaita-gtk2-theme package.
See screenshots without the theme package, and with the package included.

You posted the with adwaita-gtk2 screenshot twice ;)

skip the first screenshot, here is the one without adwaita-gtk2-theme package installed.

You're posting a screenshot of GIMP. That's a gtk+2.x package which is NOT part of GNOME. By default GTK+3.x uses Adwaita. As such gtk+2.x should have Adwaita as well. That some other desktops prefer some other theme or have one extra dependency is because the theme is changed from the default.
Gimp and other gtk+2 applications are part of our default single Gnome installation.
You are not interested, how it looks? Fine with me, I'm not even a gnome user, just a member of the QA team.
I'm giving up.

I feel like we've been discussing this for years and we're no closer to a resolution...
GTK+3 uses Adwaita as default theme.
GTK+2 uses Raleigh as default theme, and it's arguably very old fashioned, if not ugly.
GTK+2/Raleigh applications in a GTK+3/Adwaita environment look very out of place, like e.g. GIMP or LibreOffice in the out-of-the-box GNOME environment on Mageia (but also on other DEs).
So gtk+2.0 should recommend adwaita-gtk2-theme to ensure that we have a sane default theme, and meta-task should install it out of the box. If some users really don't want adwaita-gtk2, they can then uninstall it.

Great, then I'll fix this the way that I deem right. That means an additional dependency on gtk+2.x.
The not caring: whatever, I proposed a solution and you rejected it, then stating you're only QA.
adwaita-gtk2-theme is present on all the 7-beta2 ISOs.
