For some types of issue, showing the development panel is just noise.
(E.g. I want to show it for Bug, Story and Feature, but not others).
Can we make whether it appears dependent on issue type?
It's not simple, but it is possible.
You can configure the permissions based on workflow steps, so you can remove the "View Development Panel" permission in all steps from the other issue types' workflows, as detailed in http://www.j-tricks.com/tutorials/permissions-based-on-workflow-status.
In that case you can use the jira.permission.viewversioncontrol.denied property in the steps' properties.
I hope this helps!
