It's been discussed. As far as I am aware, there are still zero public
installation profiles other than the "sample" one I have been building
at Bryght (https://svn.bryght.com/dev/browser/bryghtbase/DRUPAL-5/trunk/profiles/basic).

I, personally, would like to SEE some of these install profiles
actually DONE before we make a space for them. At this point...we
don't even know what we need for install profiles...

So...right now my recommendation is

1) make a group on groups.drupal.org for your install profile(s)
2) produce some install profiles
3) let's talk again when we have more install profiles to look at
