MediaWiki's Command line installer should have a conclusion message

The output of the CLI (command line / terminal / shell) installer is kind of lame:

Creating administrator user account
Creating main page with default content

We can do much better than that. Like after the final done we could have:

MediaWiki has been successfully installed. You can now
visit <$URL> to view your wiki.
If you have questions, check out our frequently asked questions list:
<> or use one of the
support forums linked on that page.

This should probably be added in maintenance/install.php in MediaWiki core.

You are expected to provide a patch in Wikimedia Gerrit. See for how to set up Git and Gerrit.
