Description

Mentioning the PHP version and some mandatory libs version might help with upgrade and debugging (reporting concrete versions, helps support when client provides additional data without tech skills). I think this kind of data is a systems requirement (part of monitoring) and helpful. Mandatory system data should be provided by core without a plugin.

Checked other CMSes. Joomla 1.x already had sysinfo subpage, Drupal status report page or PrestaShop

Some wp-config.php (revision count, debug settings, max memory, caching) settings could be showed, similar functionality has Joomla. Of course without database password.

For inspiration I kinda like WooCommerce system status page

Resources for dependency data:

Idea came after reading https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/C60K3MP2Q/p1501355337711446

A status page with this kind of information for debugging/support reasons is actually in the works, see #39165 where there's a request for what kind of information is considered vital and should be included in a system status page.
