comment How should an OSD be coded with PyGI?
Could you describe what you are trying to create in a little more detail? 'On-screen display' isn't much to go on, and PyGI is a pretty broad category of tools as well. (That's pretty well Python + any library that uses GObject).

comment How to force a new Notification in notify-osd to show up without waiting for the earlier one to exit?
Oh, is this a shell script with notify-send? If it is, we should update your question to mention that. Including your script - or something like it - would also really help, if that is possible. Unfortunately, I don't believe this is possible (within reason) with a shell script.

comment How can I remove icons from the application panel in GNOME 3
You're thinking of GNOME Panel (as seen in the GNOME Classic session). That answer will not work here :)

comment How to install Bastion from .sh file?
Most of these installers (including the Bastion one) actually do not need to be run as root. They place files in special parts of your home folder instead of in system-wide places. There is an option to install in a system place, in which case the installer will need escalated privileges (and it might ask for that on its own, depending on how shiny and new it is).

comment Using .add() on the same widget more than once
A good way about this is if you tinker with Glade. You'll get a good feel for what's possible, at least, and how things tend to look. Once you start working with containers that do layout, there are some little details to keep in mind like halign and valign (Gtk.Align.FILL makes a widget take up as much space as it has available, rather than just what it needs), hexpand and vexpand, widget padding and column / row spacing. The C documentation is really handy for all of this, too :)
