My preference is this: under drupal/local we provide only empty
directories, with only one file:
So we have the following
Admins are then asked to manually copy the .htaccess.example to
.htaccess, and the settings.php.example to settings.php. Then they
enter the database name, user name and password and the base_url in in
the new settings.php.
Adrian's upcoming install can do these steps, perhaps after checking
that there are no existing .htaccess or settings.php, or renaming them
to .orig if they exist.
Is it any clearer now?
