In your download page can you add binaries with popular packages built in? For example if you look at https://eclipse.org/downloads/ they have a binaries with entire packages for java or php baked in.
which can include below packages or more
- file-icons etc
As for who decides these packages? It can be done by community vote…
and if binaries are not possible maybe a script or something which can be run inside atom to fetch all the packages at once.
The idea is to make it easy for newbies to start developing asap instead of hunting youtube or blogs for recommended packages which gets obsolete over time
