This box is the smallest of the 3 samples. How could it be too much to
read before it goes away? I'm confused.

This is way too big, in my opinion. That would fill half my screen. I
like that you are showing more info but I think showing multiple
messages (i.e., all messages in a gmail conversation) is too much.
Showing a separate notification for each message is more scalable and
easier to quickly read.

Even worse than number 2.

I replied off-list to Yann's last email (accidentally but didn't
bother to repost to the list) but here's a screen capture of GTalk's
notification for reference.


Not that I'm trying to steer Gajim towards duplicating GTalk but, for
myself, it is the XMPP client which most closely follows the same
interface philosophy which is the main reason that I prefer it.

I hope my criticisms won't discourage you though. You're on the right
track. I just think less is more.
