FS#2356 add welcome page for new installations
It would be nice to give new users some more guidance and add a welcome page (./data/pages/start.txt) after a new installation. That page can include helpful first tips, i.e. at least the basics how to add and edit a page and a link to wiki:syntax.
It can also help users feel more at ease by providing a welcome text which reassures them, everything is set up correctly and ready to go. (And the moment the start page, or rather what a user might perceive as a start page, shows a big "This topic does not exist yet". That can look broken and daunting to new users.)
This page should get created by the install script (and shouldn't be included as a text file in data/pages, because it would overwrite existing start pages after an upgrade).
