Description

Cloned from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1498588

Description of problem:

It is difficult for a user to tell if they've selected non-default settings in Satellite on the Settings page. This can lead to issues if they've set an option to something other than the default, and then start experiencing issues but are unsure of what change was made.

I am not sure of the best way to represent that a setting was changed, perhaps by showing "(default: X)" on non-default options, or by making non-defaults bold perhaps.
