Description

Currently on 2.2.x whenever you do a factory reset packages will not be removed. Instead, they are just removed from the GUI options and menus. I suggest this is changed for 2.3, more useful for troubleshooting if the packages are also removed.

Thanks.

Remove all additional packages from the system before reset to factory default. Fixes #5829

It makes sense. All additional packages config will be removed from config.xml when factory reset happens. So it doesn't make sense to keep binary packages around.

Tested on a full install and it worked fine. The warning appeared, and after the reset, packages were gone. Looks good to me.
