This is part 2 of Uberdrupal: from distribution to profile.
In Part I of this post, I wrote about the context that led me investigate ways to speedup the installation of various Drupal websites.
Just as you might grab a napkin to sketch out an idea in your favorite joint or reach out for a pad of paper to test a concept with fellow developers at work, one often needs a fresh Drupal code-base (a Drupal napkin) to test and validate ideas. Practice makes perfect. If only installing a fresh Drupal code-base was as easy as grabbing a paper napkin under the glassy gaze of a disillusioned waitress... Actually, piece of cake! As we will soon see. Sort of.
