Hello, CivicSpace Labs is pleased to announce the release of a Drupal  
Install Profile System for Drupal 4.7.


We are offering a tutorial on how to create install profiles. We hope  
to add a install profile system to core Drupal in the next release.   
We are supporting an install profile for the CivicSpace distribution  
based on Drupal 4.7.    As an example we will be providing a new  
grassroots group events organizing distribution of Drupal called  
GoJoinGo.   Angela Byron, a.k.a Webchick will be discussing how you  
can easily create your own distribution of Drupal.

If you have ever thought that Drupal could have better defaults  
during installation, or should have certain modules available in the  
base distribution now it's your chance to show off how you would make  
a distribution.   We hope that by releasing an install profile system  
for Drupal several months in advance of the next release of Drupal   
we can help spark the creation of innovative new Drupal distributions  
and even make Drupal itself a better distribution.

Documentation for creating install profiles is available here: http:// 
* .install files must have the t() function removed for now
