Re: Noise doesn't comply to HIG


The reason I pushed for minimizing in Noise instead of closing to make its
icon remain in the dock so that it can be accessed easily as long as the
music keeps playing.

Exactly! IMO this is true for any minimized app. That's why I filed a
blueprint about treating minimized apps as
so that they're not bound to any particular workspace.

Parts of that have already landed in Gala, see linked bug reports. It
shouldn't be hard to complete it if the design teams gives the green light.
