  1. Not covered in any documentation on 7.x that I can see:

    The contents of 'tuque' must be placed in a <drupal_install_directory>/sites/<all|default>/libraries directory (creating the libraries directory inside /sites/all or /sites/default if necessary).  Otherwise the http://localhost/drupal/admin/islandora/configure screen contains no fields to actually input configuration parameters.
