How's the Drupal Installer project going? If you haven't started on it you
could use a small installer I made. It is available from
Just download the tar gz and look inside the setup directory. The tar gz is
licensed under GPL2 (no later versions) but for the purposes of merging it
with Drupal you can consider all the code in the tar gz to be licensed under
GPL2 and later versions.
Some screenshots are available at http://www.wikinerds.org/download/
If you use it, just add my name somewhere, like a CONTRIBUTORS.txt file and
the source code.
Basically what the installer does is writing any SQL to a database, without
code changes. You provide the SQL in ASCII files. It supports database
prefix, and it can create a MySQL user.
My code is undocumented, but I can answer questions if you have any and you
wish to use it.
