Description

Often, there is information that we want to know from people reporting issues. A simple page that includes info such as versions of software, extensions, dropins used, mu-plugins, etc could help with debugging and support.

So something similar to WooCommerce has with System Status.

Query Monitor's Environment section also has some info that's probably useful too.

Any way I could help? We talked about this at WCEU contributions day, so I know there is some work being done on this. I'd like to help with this, because I think that's an awesome idea.

What information is of importance to you as a supporter, we're already looking at inspiration from plugins like WooCommerce and Query Monitor, but that may not cover all scenarios.

Also, what information is of relevance to you as a user that you may need in general (like checking on a requirement in an easier manner)

The idea is to create a directly (for admins) accessible info.php in core, much like the current options.php.

Thoughts for consideration, should the page be hookable so that plugins can use it as well for certain debug data, to avoid having multiple locations for looking up information when looked at from a users perspective?
