Description

Cloned from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1321105
Description of problem:

There are currently two operations on dashboard widgets:

'Close'
'Minimize'

These two functions seem to provide the same functionality with some small differences:

  • closed/minimized widgets are 'grouped' in 2 different buckets
  • minimizing requires you to click 'save' to persist across refreshes

I can't seem to reason the purpose of the minimize functionality and I believe it is more confusing to have both there.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Fixes #14492 - Unify delete and minimize for dashboard widgets

Originally the idea was for the buttons to have a different effect on
the widgets, however with changes introduced later on these differences
have been reduced to being insignificant.

Not sure this is valid, since it was deliberately added in #8106. Minimising is a temporary effect, closing is permanent.

This looks like a request to revert #10929 - the original design was to only have the minimized widgets appear in the dropdown, not both.
