I haven't actually done much with install itself since I chose to tackle
upgrading first. Next up for me is module installation, which will
eliminate .(my|pg)sql files. The lack of a module dependency system is
more of a problem than not having an installer, chx has an excellent
patch for that. Manual installation works and is well documented so it
is not the biggest problem right now.
For installation there are a couple efforts. This is all from memory so
please correct and add to the list as needed. It would help a lot in my
session planning for Vancouver.
CivicSpace's installer, maintained by Ankur. This is very big and has a
lot of CivicSpace hard coded in. A lot could be done to remove code
duplication with core, but there may be functions which cannot currently
be bootstrapped without a database.
Bryght's provisioning system developed by Adrian is closed source. Last
I knew CivicSpace was getting a license of some sort for one or two
projects which are going to go live real soon now.
Vlado is working on a command line installation framework which might be
able to be used with other webapps, comparable to apt. I don't know much
about that one.
Two related things which are lower priority than an installer are
post-installation configuration and site profiles. These two things
would be nice to have, but there are existing tasks that aren't going
away which can be made better first.
