Panopoly provides, by default, an 'editor' role which I find myself using a lot. But using it means I have to guide the site administrator to create a user with the role editor. I thought it could better be handled by providing a form to create that user, next to the form that creates user 1.
And since user 1 usually sees a lot more than the site builder will ever need, I thought I could just finish the installation and log the user as editor.
How do I do that? Also, is it a good idea?
