Marcel Kinard commented on CB-2234:

Lucas: code works, tests work. 

But I don't see that you've filled out an ICLA (contributor license agreement). When that
is done, your name should appear on

>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: CLI

> When users post a question about "function x in Cordova isn't working", there is a default
set of info that would be helpful to have, such as the Cordova version, OS version, perhaps
the config.xml, and so forth. So how about if there is a "cordova about" command added to
the CLI that can programmatically gather that information up, stuff it into a file, and leave
the file on the user's system. Then we can ask the users to "run the 'cordova about' command
and attach your about.txt file to the Jira issue". The intention is to make it easy and consistent
to get information about the user's environment to help us debug issues. The information should
be totally transparent, so the user can see what data they are sending.
