Currently, the App join script overwrites the UMC favourites. 

See the function appliance_basesettings() in jenkins/utils/base_appliance.sh.

r62349 Modify favorites instead of overwriting them

This might be the correct bug for this issue... we found in our last usability tests, that users are distracted by too many UMC modules in the category favorites. It would be helpful for Univention Apps to have only the app and the user module (+ maybe the software update module) in this category by default.

Any different opinions?

What about apps that use other modules? Backup apps or e.g. UCC should show the computer module, too. We could extend the app ini file with default favorites for each app. That way, we could also show modules installed by an app, e.g. all Zarafa UMC modules.

To extend the scope: What about UCS testers that do not use a Univention-App? Aren't they confused, too? Should we change the UCS default favorites?

As discussed, overwriting the favorites with the (via the ini file) supplied UMC modules would be great. This should default to user module, app module, and software update module if nothing else has been specified.

r62944: * Set umcProperty for favorites correctly
r62946: * Add favorites defaults (Bug #38976)
