      Description

      The IntroductionPage currently defaults to "Remove all components" which is not the most useful option (especially since the user has to go through a few login pages before seeing the IntroductionPage).

       

      Cause
      The current default behaviour occurs because QInstaller::BinaryContent::MagicUninstallerMarker is always inserted into MaintenanceTool.dat. IntroductionPage uses this value to set the default option.

       

      Suggestion
      Make the default "Add or remove components" or "Update components" by writing QInstaller::BinaryContent::MagicPackageManagerMarker or QInstaller::BinaryContent::MagicUpdaterMarker into MaintenanceTool.dat instead.

       

      If, at run-time, MaintenanceTool detects no valid and enabled repositories, then it can switch to "Remove all components" as the default.
