That is a good idea that can be probably implemented very easily.
However, what is the benefit over a persistent button in the top panel?
I believe its adequately provides a solution to meet all constraints
so far expressed in this discussion.
1) Notice on login with buttons!
2) Automatically hides itself after a few seconds and gets the hell
out of the way if you don't want to do an install and really do want
to use this live environment.
3) Does not change the delivered UI by adding a new static element
that is Fedora install specific.
4) Available in the overview as a reminder until dismissed..allowing
for delayed install action.
This makes the install bubble equivalent UI to the current selinux avc
notices. They pop up (on login) you can either deal with them or not.
The reality is Gnome 3 is trying very very hard to remove the swamp
that was the notification tray along the top bar. Good or bad, right
or wrong, that is clearly one of the design goals.
The button in the top panel works directly against that goal. So
instead of digging our heels into an implementation that is clearly
not aligned with upstream design decisions, lets find something that
works and meets the constraints. I'm not going to bash my head
against the brickwall supporting an implementation that is out of step
with the over all design in what has become a design led UI.
