How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Feature Request: Introduce a 'Remediate' option for Package/DPs for remediating package failures.

When a package fails to distribute to a DP, the only option right now is to 'Redistribute' the package to the DP. This is inefficient for large packages since 'Redistribute' transfers all package content to the DP even if some content may have already been transferred prior to the failure. For large packages, this not only takes a lot of time but consumes more network bandwidth than necessary.

When a package is 'added' to the DP, only the missing files are copied to the DP however there is no way to simulate an 'add' action from the UI.

Having the ability to trigger an 'add' action for a Package/DP will help remediate content transfer issues a lot quicker as it will only require copying the content that's actually missing on the DP instead of 'redistributing' all content.
