[geeklog-devel] Todo List for 1.5.0 release?

I had an issue with installer. I grabbed CVS a day before Oliver's 
latest surge of updates and created an empty database and installed. 
On my home machine I hate having to restart Apache so I just have a 
directory called \webroot and I just create sub-directories as I need 
them (I have like 5 GL installs all sitting next to each other at the 
moment). So the installer gave me a screen with:

site url: http://localhost:8080/strip/public_html      (strip is 
subdirectory under \webroot)
admin directory path: /strip/public_html/admin      (shouldn't this 
just be a complete url path?)

Looks okay right? It didn't look bad to me. Except when the install 
finished, all the admin functions had this url:


Oops. I'm guessing I should have just said "admin" for admin 
directory path. I'll go into configuration and fix it. Ooops can't. I 
go to the database and fix it. Well, luckily I know how to modify


and turn it into


In any case, was any testing done on using the installer on installs 
that are not in the webroot? Is there any way to add a rescue screen 
in case your admin url gets hosed? Maybe "admin directory path" 
should be renamed admin url so the url isn't constructed in code 
after the user can no longer fix it.
