I would suggest removing this one from your plan. The core team 
eventually intends to unbundle Akismet from core and probably shift to 
more of a "featured" plugin model for functionality that the core team 
recommends but doesn't think belongs in core itself. As it was discussed 
at last year's core team meetup, Akismet will stay bundled until such 
time as we have a more generic antispam plugin that could plug in to any 
service (not Just Akismet), but in the meantime, we don't want to ship 
without an anti-spam solution. There are no plans to bundle any 
additional plugins.
