Author has suggested to bring transmission window to the top when new torrent is added. It has advantages and disadvantages:

  • Right now when "Display options window" is enabled torrent doesn't start until user close it. If transmission window is hidden behind other windows user may not notice that and his download won't start.
  • On the other hand continuous popping up transmission window would be really irritating if user is adding more torrents.

  • Status changed from new to closed

This is exactly the kind of scenario that gtk_window_set_urgency_hint() was created for, and that's what Transmission already uses.

My gut feeling is that forcing a window raise as suggested here would make a couple of users happy, and annoy everyone else.

If there is "prior art" about this with other official Gnome applications, I'd be happy to reconsider this decision s.t. Transmission behaves consistently with other apps on the Gnome desktop.
