    Description

      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.
