The new wizard walks the user through installing Review Board via the
following steps:

  1. Showing an overview of the install process, along with the system and
    target version information, and confirming before moving on.

  2. Displays details on the Site vs. Install Directories, asks the user
    for the install location for the virtualenv, and validates the path.

  3. Shows the commands that will be run and then prompts for confirmation
    before installing.

  4. Performs the install, streaming results and showing progress.

  5. Asks the user if they want to create a new sitedir or import one, and
    walks the user through those choices.

  6. If requested, executes rb-site install to help the user install the
    site.

  7. Finishes up with a success or error result, and any further steps
    that may be needed.

This makes the install process very simple, and gives users just enough
information to make the right choices.

Right now, the wizard is not invoked. That will be handled in the next
change.

Extensively tested the wizard in both interactive and unattended modes.
Tested validation and error handling, and different install state for
installation options. Completed several installs.

    I feel like we should specify that this will exit the installer, and that they'd have to continue this part of the installation on their own. Could say something like "Press Control-C if you want to exit the installer and setup your Site Directory later on your own.". Also I have a comment below that mentions how we should link to the documentation for setting up a site directory, we should do that here too before the installer exits.

    We should link to the documentation.

    1. We should. I'm going to put this in the introductory paragraph and then in the conclusions, so they can learn more before they make a choice, and then when it's time for next steps.

  4. rbinstall/wizard.py (Diff revision 1)
     
     
     

    We should add another sentence here to refer them to the documentation for setting up a site directory, and link to this documentation.

  5. rbinstall/wizard.py (Diff revision 1)
     
     

    Per my comments above, if we add specific links to the documentation I think we could get rid of this generic "Refer to the documentation to finish setting up" sentence. That way we're not repeating ourselves, and people will be able to easily find what the next steps are, depending on whether the site directory was created or not. We should still keep the "Contact [support_link] if you need assistance" though.
