[RFE] Use notification drawer space more efficiently [depends on PF #959]

Description of problem:
Notification drawer takes space across the entire page although only half of it is used for displaying alerts. This seems like a waste and I would rather see it used for displaying more alerts or being rendered only for necessary space.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open webadmin and log in
2. open notification drawer
drawer is rendered across the entire page even though it just shows blank space on the bottom
should be rendered only as big as many items are shown or more items should be displayed to take the blank space
it actually did make 4.2

OK, it's sort of better now, but there is still a blank space when not so many items are present and thus "Events" and "Clear"/"Display All" buttons are in the middle of notification drawer.

Petr, thanks :) That's by design in PatternFly: https://www.patternfly.org/pattern-library/communication/notification-drawer/
You could open a bug on PatternFly if you like (https://github.com/patternfly/patternfly/issues)
But tbh I like the functionality as it is now. Please pass?
But I can't set "Depends On" to github issue :(
I looked at your github issue, and this is indeed pretty ugly. Thanks for opening the issue.
I'll keep this as a tracker and move to 4.3, awaiting a PatternFly fix.
since we are waiting for a PF (https://github.com/patternfly/patternfly-design/issues/573) this is not modified anymore. Moving to new.
