Since different problems and wishes are mentioned there it could be useful to split this up in the future (umbrella bug?). For a start, I have tried to summarize the ideas and requests reported. Feel free to add what I missed.

From top to bottom:

Usability:
"...(icons) are not really self-explaining or distinguishable."
=> https://community.ipfire.org/t/how-to-backup-addons/4846/3

Altering of config files and feature request:
"...I guess none of my addons “do a backup". It would be useful if there was a way to at least backup the list of addons that are installed so I don’t have to guess when my firewall dies and I have to build a new one."
=> https://community.ipfire.org/t/how-to-backup-addons/4846/5

E.g. => Sample user script for saving the list of installed addons:
