Not sure if this feature has been discussed, but I think WP could
benefit in having installation profiles, similar to that of drupal.
Has anyone previously proposed this?
Installation profiles could automatically pre configure WordPress with
a set of activated plugins, change the default activated theme and
could also possibly change/add some default settings/content?--all
during the install process. This could be beneficial to a lot of users/
developers allowing them to jump right into content creation instead
of site configuration.
Users could create a profile that contains all their settings and
activated plugins they'd usually have to configure after installing
WP. The profile that they create could also be used across all their
blogs--saving a lot of time.
As for implementation, that's up for debate. Changes would have to be
made to the core installation process. Ideally, installation profiles
should make the famous 5 min install even quicker.
