Wait, what should become a feature:

(1) Installing activities from USB stick (or some offline medium)
(2) If the updater is launched, only preselect the activities which
are already installed (this patch is for that)

Probably both should become features, but isn't (2) simple enough to
be just included as a bug-fix?

I guess people here actually mean (1), in that case I agree. Can
someone create a feature proposal ;-)

Unrelated, there is another bugfix that only shows those activities in
favorites view which have been upgraded AND were favorites before, or
installed new. Should that be a feature proposal too?
