Comment (by imath):

 3460.05.patch is adding a new admin UI in each subsite in case of a
 network. This is a screenshot of this UI :


 Thanks to it :
 The subsite administrator can eventually deactivate a post type that is
 active on the network or activate one that is not available on the

 The really tricky part is for populating the action filters in activity
 directory and member activity page. I've tried to think about all
 possibilities but one will probably need a repare tool (i need to test
 #5296) :)

 If a post type is subsite only, and activated in the subsite: it's tracked
 and the activity actions is added to the selectboxes. If the site
 administrator change his mind and decide to untrack the post type from his
 subsite, the post type is no more tracked and the activity actions is no
 more in the selectbox (except if the same post type is still tracked by
 another subsite).

 But if the administrator uses the "discourage search engine" option before
 untracking his post type, then there's a chance the selectbox keeps on
 displaying the action for the untracked post type.

 So if we are to do this, from my point of view it can be interesting to
 have a repare tool to check if the post type is no more in use in any
 subsite to eventually remove it from the activity selectboxes.

 Another approach would be to consider in the case of "specific to subsite"
 post type, we're not taking care of creating an activity filter..
