The problem is that you even don't know that somehing is missing. And if 
you notice that seomething is missing you don't know why.

There is no visual feedback in the "download section" that it is affected 
by soemthing in the "settings section". Other options like the "shy" filter 
are available on the same page.

If the default will not be changed, I suggest either to move the checkbox 
onto the install page or to make a visual note of the setting of the 
"supported" flag (plus a link/info on how to change it!).



"Display shy extensions:" vs  "Show obsolete:" - why to different verbs?
