We want to give users more fine-grained control over what notifications are displayed by the shell. The filtering will be done on a per-application basis, in a new gnome-control-center panel. The design for this panel can been seen here: Design/SystemSettings/Notifications.
Affected modules: gnome-shell, gnome-control-center, gsettings-desktop-schemas
Design for the control-center panel is done.
Bugs for tracking the status of the implementation:
#687932 (gsettings-desktop-schemas) Add schemas for notification filtering
#685926 (gnome-shell) message tray: add filtering for notifications
#642831 (gnome-shell) Support sound in NotificationDaemon
#685928 (gnome-control-center) add a panel for configuring notifications
Experimental patches and screenshots have been attached to the above bugs.
The necessary support in applications is being tracked in GnomeGoals/NotificationSource.
