Hi Marcel,

I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. Shall I revert this?

The problem that I see with this strategy is that users that do not explicitly try out all new defaults will be surprised by them lately only when they try out a newly released image. If all preference variables were only set to a value different from nil when a user *explicitly decides* to change it, it would be easier for us to change the behavior for the rest of the users only.

Hi Christoph --

This is what I meant what we should not do. We should not change the preferences a user currently has in his or her image through the update stream. Just because we agreed on a different default value, we must not change what users decided before that. :-( Please don't do that again in the future. :-) We only synchronize those preferences in the release-building process.
