(I'm starting new thread, even though this topic relates to pkg management
module integration as well, it's not exactly the same)

... and while we're at it, what about intergrating "Online update",
"Automatic online update" and "Online update configuration" into one module
as well?

Good point. Any idea how to do it?

At least "Automatic online update" and "Online update configuration"
could be merged quite easily, for instance, in one module using tabs.

"Online update" is a tool we run to get patches downloaded and installed
the easies possible way. Merging it with those other two would produce
rather more problems:

* "Online update" should be as easy as possible, start a package
manager, download patches, present them to user, install them...
* If we merge it with the rest, starting the one-big-online-xyz would
either disturb by refreshing sources and patches or it would have to
start the online update on request which is one click more.

I'd be for merging those two but "Online update" should stay alone
(maximally there could be an option to run "Online update configuration"
and/or "Automatic online update" from there).
